I haven't been able to check it out yet. I have to figure out where the ignition module is located on this thing. I just picked up a Chilton Manual and I hope it will show me what I am looking for. I will most certainly let you know when and if I solve the problem.

Copied from Yahoo Answers.com

This is somthing I have done many times... The ignition module is located on a flat spot on the side of the distributor. To remove this module you should have the special socket to fit into the recessed area where the bolts are. They are not allen screws though . They are like a mini version of a bolt. (Unless someone else changed the bolts before). Use caution when removing these bolts... They have been known to slip on the socket head. And it doesn't take much to strip these small heads. Also keep in mind that these bolts are being screwed and unscrewed out of aluminum. Which with time can and will corrode. Sometimes the screws will be very tight or sometimes they will snap off because of all the corrosion. It happens. There is no way to spray any penitraiting oil into the threads so you'll have to just take your time. If and when you get it appart then you can tap the threads in the base of the distributor housing to clean them. When you get your new module it should come with dielectric grease... Spread this on the back of the module where the bare metal is. Also if the base of the distributor where the module goes is corroded or rusty clean this area up good as well. The cleaner the better. Also when you reassemble the module to the base of the distributor don't tighten the bolts too tight into the module housing...It is only plastic there and making them too tight will crack the plastic where the bolts tighten into. I have had many that were like this when I went to change them. They only need to be just tight enough so they are snug. That is enough. By the way if you don't get any dielectric grease with your new module you can also use Vaseline... This works just as well. If it comes to the point that you can't remove the module off the base of the distributor you may have to remove the entire distributor assembly out of the truck. Sometimes this is easier and you have a much lesser chance of breaking the module. (This is just something to keep in mind if the module gives you too much trouble).
