Accel distributor problem

I just installed a new Accel billetproof distributor #71100E along with matching coil according to the instructions. I got the unit installed and the engine started right away and ran good for around 5 minutes and died. Wouldn't restart! I checked for spark at the coil wire and found it was very weak. I removed the distributor and checked the wire connections to the module and the mag. pickup, air gap and it all looks good. Tested the coil with my VOM and it checks out too! I would assume the module is bad. Does anyone know how to test the module or have any advice?......... Thanks!
