I thoroughly cleaned the base plate where the new module mounted and applied the packet of grease supplied with it to the bottom of the module. I ensured that the bottom of the new module had a nice even coating of grease.

I then applied my own electric grease to the connecting terminals for the wiring (both ends of the module and the connections to the dist. cap).

I am beginning to suspect that the coil I used is the culprit. As soon as the rain and snow stop here I plan on testing the coil I used and testing the new module just to be sure.

A friend who works at advance can get me an accel dist. for under $130...which is about what it would cost to replace the coil, module, and pick-up...so that may be the next option.

I appreciate all the help you and ignition man have given.

I think a brand new dist. would be the best next step if the old one doesn't test out well.

Thanks again guys.
