Actually the ignition module is not in the distributer. You are looking at the stator or pick-up coil. If you want to replace that, you have to remove the shaft out of the distributer. It is necessary to remove the distributer, use a small punch to knock the roll pin holding the drive gear on the bottom of the shaft off, and use a special tool, that should be available at your local autoparts store through through loaner tool program, to press the gear off of the shaft. Then you work the shaft out of the distributer. If it is stubborn, you some carburetor cleaner to break the carbon loose. After the shaft is out, you can replace the stator. During reassembly again, another special tool will be needed to press the gear back on. If you cant get the special tools I mentioned, you might be able to carry the distributer to a repair shop, or a machine shop, and get them to press the gear on and off for you.
