Is the ignition module attached to ANYWHERE on the engine?

That's a Duraspark III, EEC II,III system. As you found out, there
isn't a pickup coil. It uses a crankshaft position sensor instead of
the usual pickup

He's right Backyard. The distributor is empty and IIRC, not adjustable for base
timing. I think that was an early EEC-III system, it used a crankshaft position sensor
instead of a distributor pickup. One variation, probably California emissions, used a
really odd 3 contact rotor. The system was also Dura Spark instead of TFI. They were
only around for a couple of years so I don't remember much about them. jimblobs
problem is very likely the module but there were a couple of other common bugaboos on
these cars that I don't recall off the top of my head.

Yep... considering what the others said, I would think so... and suspect
the crank sensor
