Can't really tell ya as to what fuse links need to be where, as i don't have my manual in front of me. But, i do know that this same thing happened to me the other day. In my case it was the Duraspark box on the inner fender that was my issue. Not sure how much they are new, now, but should be fairly cheap. From now on i'm carrying a spare just in case.

It may also be the pick-up coil inside the distributor, and i know those are about $20 from the Autozoo.

I know everyone is going to say 'Holy HeyZeus, here we go again!' That control module could be giving you trouble and everyone one on this site will testify to that, because it is the truth. Yet, My Napa store tested the three I bought and they were fine.
My problem was with the magnetic pick up buried down at the bottom of the distributor. The wires were old and cracked on the inside. Easy replacement, you'll spend more time looking at your distributor and drinking a beer, then actually pulling the old one out and putting the new one in. Small magnet charged screw driver is recommended, small screws involved, with a shaft into your engine.
Good luck.

you bet that actually tells the coil what to do. so if coil isn't giving spark than it could very easily be that I had planned on getting one tomorrow as well as a icm. something tells me I will be using one or the other soon enough thanks

still not working I replaced the pick up moduel in distributor. took icm that I had replaced years ago. down to O'riley's and they tested it twice and it came back good. so I didn't replace it. (I have no power to red wire going into icm.) parts guy said it could be ignition switch? only I don't now where ignition switch is exactly I did replace years ago a switch down on column but it had something to do with adjusting the key not sure thats the one to replace. any help would be great thanks

How about the other wire, had 78 LTD, and red plugged into white, white into red, one is ignition, one is Start. You don't have the yellow connector, do you, the extra sensor (early MAP) went out, and I had to get the Blue box.

that column mounted switch sounds right. May just need adjusted again.
