Yes, you have to pull the distributor. Make sure and make where the rotor is pointing so you can get the distributor back in the correct spot. Afterward check the timing.

Forgot to mention, you'll have to knock the pin out of the distributor gear, and remove the distributor gear off of the shaft, so you can pull the shaft out of the distributor housing.

Not on a Ford, if you look at the star wheel you will see a small roll pin that holds the star wheel in place, you carefully pull the star wheel off, don't loose the pin, replace the pickup coil assembly put the star wheel back on in the exact place it was the drive the roll pin back into place. You won't have to mess with the timing, the oil pump drive rod, nothing like that.

tennisshoes, the pick up coil is one piece that the distributor shaft runs threw the center hole of the pick-up. Looking at the part, I don't see how to split that in half, it is one piece.

You know, looking at the pick-up coil, I'm not so sure you would even have to remove the star wheel. Either or, like tennisshoes says, no you would not have to remove the distributor.
