Whoever came up with the notion that the ignition module had to be relocated must have been high on something. It's 100 percent absolutely fine where it is. I do keep a spare in the cubby box tho...

Feh. It cured a longstanding issue with the ignition system in my '94 and has for many others. Leave that spare at home and tempt fate . . .

Ignition modules don't do well with heat and on the dizzy it cooks, on the fender it stays cool (and is 10x easier to change). How you change one in situ on the side of the road without pulling the dizzy I would like to see.

PS no offense intended.

I was actually able to remove the ignition module without taking the distributor off, I was at home of course but it was kind of a bitch. Wouldn't want to do it off the side of the road. You have to take off the vacuum advance screws, than the advance itself, rotate the distributor to the front, it helps to loosen the alternator bracket and push it to the side, which is what I did, then I was able to access the screws with my tiny socket set. Hey is there a substitute for that white silicone that comes with the ignition module that I can use? What if I use dielectric grease or just regular silicone, will it make a difference?

I believe it's the same thing you put on heat sinks on computer CPUs - it's a conductive paste to allow a good connection between the module and the mounting plate to dissipate heat.

BTW, I expect nothing less than a picture a young lady's exposed buttocks with N and M drawn on them with the remaining paste, since you don't need much for the job.
