What is a Pickup coil assembly?

Without this, your distributor won't work. Without your distributor... :( Go to your distributor. On the outside of it you should see a plug with harness (?) feeding into the distributor. This is the beginning of your pickup coil "assembly". Take off your distributor cap. You'll see that "harness"/assembly feeds into the very top of your distributor, held by a "molded" grommet (on mine), then, it "coils" around the top and you'll see that it feeds (or plugs into) into some part of the distributor (again, you can only see this when your distributor cap is off). I'm basing all of this on my 84 CJ7. I have no clue if all distributors are the same. Good luck.

Yes. It's a beast to get to though. If you take off the access panel behind the passenger seat, you can just see the wiring harness and back of the distributor/coil.

There are 3 screws that hold the cap to the distributor, two near the engine, the other on the far side. Good luck.
