Question about 1987 Ford Merkur Scorpio
The module is the Gray plugin part that receives the wires going into the Distributor. There are 2 screws which may need a Special Screwdriver to fit the screws and to give clearance to remove the part.
Usually the module comes with a Plastic packet of the "heat sink compound" with barely enough to do the job.
The part number is usually molded in the plastic or may be etched on the metal face where it meets the distributor. Until you remove the module you will not see the part.number.
The screwdriver you need used to be everywhere in the days cars had this type of module. I believe Lyle or Leslie were 2 aftermarket makers of this tool.
Try an internet search for "ignition module tool or screwdriver". Then search for "Ford Scorpio ignition module" for the part. There were not many engine choices for that car. Also look on the drivers door or center pillar for an Emissions code. This code is the onboard computers Programming pattern. The module may be married to the computer and it may be possible to reference the matching module through this Progamming pattern code.
