SOURCE: We've replaced the distributor cap and rotor in

This is a one piece distributor. It has the coil and pickup sensor all built in. Check and see if you have 12 volts on the large red wire that plugs into the cap while the key is on. (The other wire is for a tachometer if you have one). If you have power and there is no spark from your ignition wires, your pickup module is bad in the distributer. Very rarely have I seen a failed coil.

SOURCE: replace old points distributor with a electronic

this is easy if you can find parts meant for it. Need a distributor, a crank sensor and pulley with a reference point for the sensor, a control module, coil, cap, rotor, wires, and you should be good to go.the CKP (crank sensor) tells the module when to fire, the module fires the coil, and the distributor determines basically when it fires in terms of milliseconds (basic timing), same as with points. The timing via distributor is necessary since the fuel is not controlled via CMP (cam sensor). otherwise the distributor would be fixed and the computer would control fuel volume/timing and ignition timing at the same time, and since there is no reference for the fuel or valve timing, the module has no way to determine the most effective timing therefore simply fires when the crank passes the sensor.

This vintage of ford electronic ignition systems had a common problem with the ignition modules and the pick-up inside the distributor. I would replace both just because they're overdue and I wouldn't want to risk getting stranded somewhere.
