There is supposed to be a black plastic insulator under the rotor covering up the sensors in the lower part of the distributor. Do not run without it, sparks will jump down to the low voltage parts and kill them.

If you keep blowing coils and modules you might also have a bad spark wire. The coil especially does not like to fire into an open circuit.
