if its the one I`m thinking about ICM is mounted to the side of the distributor on the outside, you don`t have to reset the timing, unless you have been moving the distributor. there is a spout connector that has to be disconnected to set the timing. it is near the distributor and is a 2 wire connector that is grey in colour. its a shorting bar meaning the plug that is plugged into the 2 wire connector has no wires. when you pull the plug the timing goes into basic timing and you can set the timing. when you have set the timing shut off the engine and reconnect the spout, restart the engine and make sure the engine light is off on the dash.
the distributor is held by a clamp bolted to the block where the 'stem' enters the block.remove cap and mark position of rotor to ensure proper ignition timing upon re-assembly,note firing order of plugs.if a 'no spark condition exists,check 'pick-up module 'bolted to the side of distributor,below cap,a hex head 'special tool' is available to remove module w/ distributor in place. these modules are only rated for 50K miles.
take the distributor cap off make sure you disconnect the battery distributor has two bolts that hold it in one is a fixed bolt and one is an adjustment bolt mark where the rotor is facing and where the ears on distributor are sitting remove the bolts and it should slide out.mark the same spots on new one it replacing and stab it back in.
