Ford had 2 locations on Trucks depending on the size, one location was on the distributor, the other was on the drivers side on the front core support and had a heat sink around it. Both were held in place by 2 5.5mm bolts, on the distributor units you removed the bolts and carefully slid the module down until it disconnected itself from the pickup coil inside the distributor, (note: if the wiring gets pulled out of the pickup coil then you will have to replace it also) then install new module and secure. On the core mounted one just unbolt it remove the bad module and replace it with the new one. Just don't forget in special silicone grease supplied with the new modules, it is the heat transfer paste for the modules. HTH
