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.

How do you replace the distributor modulator on a 1989 mustang 302 ho?

The TFI module sits on the front of the distributor. I was able to remove it without removing the distributor. Its a rectangular grey or black plastic module with a large electrical connector. Napa sells a special wrench for removing the screws. They are small and difficult to get to. I would recommend this tool as it helped me greatly. I think its called a Ford TFI Module wrench. Remove the large electrical connector and remove the two screws holding the module to the distributor. Apply a generous amount of thermal paste to the back of the new module. Make sure there is an even coating and no air pockets in the thermal grease. If this step is not done properly it will burn up the new module. Install the new module on the distributor and fasten screws. Install connector.

If there is adequate room, leave the spark plug and coil wires attached. Set the cap aside and look for a wiring harnes on the bottom of the distributor.

Replace and assemble in reverse order. Make sure to get the distributor cap on the same way and do not rotate the distributor during the process.
