Any tips on Igntion Module changeout?

Does anyone have any tips/hints on changing out the ignition module on our '89? I removed the torx bolts and saw a number of small bubbles in the epoxy and it was gummy in places. I hope to keep the old coil pack on top, assuming they are two separate parts. The service manual wasn't much help; only showed the removal of the three bolts connecting it to the engine. Unless I'm missing something, it seems pretty straightforward from there (just removing the wire connections and putting the new ICM and its wires under the old coil pack) Did I also read the new ones from NAPA were better? Any part numbers to suggest? Thanks in advance!

Yes it is quite simple, just note the wire connections. The gummy epoxy is very hard to clean up after, Gue Gone may work, I used gasoline. The NAPA unit is a little thicker and may hold up better to the high temps, time will tell. I have replaced 2 ICM's on my 90 Riv & Reatta<P>Gary Frank
