1988 Ignition Control Module location???

Been having trouble starting since I bought my YJ, it will eventually turn over, but takes a lot of cranking to get there. I just replaced my second starter recently, have changed all the plugs, wires, distributor cap, new battery. The only things left are the coil and the ICM. I'm not the most mechanically inclined in the world, but the Chilton manual says the ICM is located on the fire wall adjacent to the battery, but I can't find it. Does anyone have a photo or suggestion where to look? I don't think the PO did the nutter by-pass, so it should be in there (I hope)!

On my '87 it is located below the washer fluid reservoir and coolant overflow tank.

It's #15 in this picture (although you can't see it).
