HOW CAN I ELIMINATE THE CRANKSHAFT POSITIONING SENSOR WITH A DURASPARK IGINITION

The crankshaft positioning sensor is no longer available anywhere and I have been told that there is a way to eliminate the part and use a distributor and condenser and need to know how to accomplish this to get the car running and stay running

Do you
have the same problem?

CAR RUNNING, changed the distributor with one from a 1979 ford bronco 302 engine, thus eliminating crankshaft sensor all together.

Can you please elaborate more on the swap? What wiring did you have to do to connect it?
I may be looking at a similar alternative on my '79 Versailles. Photos are always helpful too.
