Question Hel[ with 1987 560 SEC Engine Swap

Hello fellow Benz lovers and owners. I own a 1984 500 SEC and blew the engine. I have since then bought an engine from a 1987 560 SEC and did an engine swap. I was informed that the ignition module from the 84 will not start the engine from the 87. Can anybody please help me out and point me in the right direction?
