I believe you're referring to the Hall Effect Sensor.

I don't think it is too difficult to replace. If you are interested
I'll sell you the whole distributor from my 1990 2.9L. It's sitting
on a shelf just waiting to be put in a box :-). I'll make a note to
look in my shop manual and see what it says about replacing that piece
of the distributor.
One OS to rule them all, one OS to find them,
One OS to bring them all and in the darkness bind them,
In the Land of Redmond, where the Shadows lie.
