Ceramic ret. block on firewall

What is the white ceramic retangle block on firewall.
I'm installing it after 5 yrs and I can't remember how it hooks up to the distributor and coil. I would like to install it this morning so I could crank my engine.
Thanks

It is the ignition input power resistor, generally used for aftermarket coils, Accel 14001 comes to mind, the big yellow coil. OE wire for ignition is a cloth covered wire - resistive wire.

In OE set-up, the cloth wire would be hooked up to the + coil terminal and distributor on the - terminal. With the ceramic resistor, cloth wire to one terminal of the resistor, a lead from the other resistor terminal to the + coil terminal, then the - terminal to the distributor. The yellow wire from the starter solenoid would go to the + coil terminal.
