Easiest way is to start at the Ignition Control Module and trace the cable back to the rear of the engine.

Mine goes to the distributor, does that mean I don't have one on my model.

Yup. Early cars didn't have timing windows on the flywheel.

Okay, so I located the ignition module with the attached cables. Im guessing that the CPS is the one at the top right of the photo (see attached). I diconnected the cable and tried starting the engine, but it would not fire up. When I reconnected the cable the engine started better than it has in a long time. After a few more times, the engine began to stall out and I had too rev it to keep it running. All of this seems to point to the CPS, could it possibly be anything else? I know I also have to change the Cam Position Sensor at some point. Thanks for all of the help.
