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.

WELL 1986 IGNITION SYSTEM ELECTRONIC THE WAS NO POINTS USED. LAST SET OF POINTS IN TOYOTA WAS 1979 TO 1980 POINTS GAP SETTING WOULD HAVE BEEN 0.018

SOURCE: ignition points gap setting for
your local library has repair manuals or go online--some dealer techs may look it up for you--aproximating the gap can be done-just dont make it too wide or close

SOURCE: what is the feeler gauage
.45mm or 18 thou . Set them when the rubbing block of the points are on the highest part of the lobe. Reset the ignition timing after setting the points as points setting changes the timing. Use a strobe light or if you dont have one you can do it statically . Put the engine on its timing mark on the front pulley not tdc. loosen the distributor turn the ignition on and slowly rotate the dissy until you hear the small tic of the points opening and the spark jumping. at this point re tighten the dissy. That should do the trick If this helps Please Vote Jeff
