Merry Christmas, so here's a present.
I recently reconditioned my spare Bosch HEI distributor and took many photos
so I compiled an instructional document of the procedure.
Feel free to offer any advice, suggestions and corrections to the document.

Great presentation fuzzy.
A couple of minor suggestions: p4, use the correct names, it will avoid confusion for those that need to obtain replacement parts. The plate is known as the reluctor.
p5, where you remove the backup plate, the bit with the six lugs on it is called the stator. The pickup coil that is fitted is also known as the reluctor coil.
p25, there is no mention of setting the air gap between the stator and reluctor. One way to do it is to put small pieces of folded paper between each of the lobes(probably there a better name) of the stator and the reluctor lugs, then tighten down the stator ring with the allen key bolts and this will ensure an even air gap.
You are right about testing the module, your test will definitely highlight one that has no chance of working, but will not detect the majority of faulty modules which have other faults.
