Trying to remove pick up module

There is a cam sensor located under the distributor cap. Is that what you are trying to replace? If so remove the cap. Remove the rotor. Rotate the crankshaft with a socket and ratchet via the crank pulley until the square notch in the exciter ring lines up with the cam sensor. Remove the two cam sensor screws and remove the sensor.
