I've never had to do it because I found mine to be completely reliable, increase performance and eliminate maintenance for 6 1/2 years. But if I did, I would at least try this: On a side mount distributer there are two wires going to the module. Put battery voltage to the red wire. Hook a volt meter to the black wire.
Pass a magnet past the module. Most any old magnet would do. When you pass by the module you should read momentary voltage on your vom.
Not sure about a front mount but I would suspect they could be tested in a similar way.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to seeWell, that is a guess, but no cupie doll for you! 1) we don't know if he has 6v/12v or 2) Pos or Neg ground. None of those with red/blk wires will output a voltage on the black wire. When 'on' those models pull the black wire to ground, just as points would pull to ground. Modules with a Black and Black/white pair of wires will output a voltage on the blk/wht wire when 'on'. Not many constants in life, just a lot of variables. And here I was looking for your step by step approach of replacing 1) coil & if no joy, replace 2) module, & if still no joy, replace 3) ign sw, and etc., etc., one 'step' at a time. Not exactly Bruce's systematic approach, but...............
Are we having fun yet?

P.S., I don't think Pat cares, since his one & only post, there is nothing other that bystanders posts (10 of them ).

1) I have said many times here that I'm not the guy to ask for advice on electrical issues.
That's why i keep trying to bring people to understand the benefits of 12V and EI.
Install them - or pay someone to if you don't know how - and you'll likely not have to touch your electrics except to replace a battery every 5 years.

2) I generally don't write lengthly treatises here so if you are looking for a step by step approach to anything I'm not your man for that either.

3) Time is on my side. As the EI haters here age it will be harder and harder for for them to deal with those pesky front mounts and they'll convert to something easier and more reliable.

4) I am very patient.
