geez, reading this post brought back memories for me from just one year ago. I hope that screw was the final fix... during my time trouble shooting my random stalling problem, I too thought ICM a few times and I think I once swapped mine out for a junkyard replacement and the car ran without bolting it to the fender. If that fender screw is the only ground that would be a pretty weird design. Ground for mine shows at pin 2 and maybe/probably traces back to somewhere else? not sure, and could also be shared with that screw// but my first thought is "screw - fender well - rust - not good".
I think I would still pursue getting that hall sensor from your other post. In the end, that was my final fix. Pretty sure the 'intermittent' for me was related to heat at the distributor. One day last winter I was about 20 miles from home and it died (again). To test my heat theory I got out grabbed an handful of snow and packed it tight on top of the distributor just behind the cap. Waited 5 minutes and it started right up. Every few miles I would stop and add more snow and was able to get home no problem. Next time I headed out same thing... snow around distributor got me home (careful to not have it melt and run under the cap). I then ordered that exact eBay sensor from the link given to you. I opened up the distributor and put it in & I've never needed snow again. It's not a super terrible job... just be mindful when stuffing the wires back down inside there when putting it back together / I left the green a little too long and it did get crowded and I was concerned about rubbing and wear if it was up against the spinning post that the rotor attaches to.. / if you open it up, you'll see what I mean.
Anyway, if you find yourself back at this thread, then that's what I was thinking while reading.
