I had problems with my hall sender way back when I got the car, but for me 
it was an intermitent fault that would keep the car from starting.    Never 
had similar issues when mine was on the fritz.  I wound up just replacing 
the whole distributor and the problem went away.  If you can determine 
that's the problem, unless have a metal geared distributor, you may want to 
replace the whole distributor rather than just the hall sender.

Unfortunately, I don't have any alternate solutions on where to look for the

Hmm.  The Hall sensor, or rather the wires into the Hall sensor,
are a weak point.  I thought someone (Lee Levitt?) was looking
into using a Volvo Hall sensor as a replacement. The archives
may have more.  For a used distributor, try chris at force5auto.com.
