if you're refering to the ignition pick up coil, then it's inside the distributor. you need to remove the distributor, dismantle, replace the coil, and reinstall the distributor. if you aren't mechanically inclined, then don't bother trying. you need to do certain prep work, have a timing light, know how to rebuild a distributor, and reinstall it to specs.
