Windshield wiper motor.
You have spark from the coil wire so obviously the module, pickup assembly, and coil are working. Why are you replacing those parts? First of all, what is the symptom? Do you have a no-start condition or are you fighting a misfire?
That spark from the coil wire should be blue and a good 1/4" long. If it's just a tiny spark, treat that as no spark. Sounds like you have a bad plug wire or there's a carbon track inside the new distributor cap. Bad plug wires can cause that because if the spark can't get through the plug wire, it's going to find another path to ground, and that is likely to be inside the cap.
If the spark from the coil wire is strong, instead of holding it close to a metal part of the engine, hold it close to the terminal on the distributor cap. If it's strong there, replace the cap, rotor, and plug wires.
