Honda refers to that as a "crank angle sensor", but it appears that isn't used on your engine. The only reference I can find is the distributor pickup, and of course I can't find that listed for sale anywhere. Looks like you have to buy the entire distributor.
There is also an ignition module that looks like it might be bolted inside the distributor. Those can fail intermittently too, but not as often as the pickup assembly. Looks like it's irrelevant. You'll get everything with the distributor. You might try finding a distributor at a salvage yard, then, if it solves the problem, consider buying a rebuilt unit with a warranty from an auto parts store.
