1975 350 SLC won't start

This 8-cyl euro model has points which, when open, show a reading of 12 volts across. So far, so good. Problem is, they also show no resistance across the open points, which is bad. If I remove the lead from the condenser, the needle on the multimeter drops back down to zero where it belongs when the points are open. The lead from the condenser goes to a black box on the driver side fender of the engine compartment which is filled with what appear to be resistors. Does anyone know what this is, what it does, how I can end up with a short to ground in this thing, and what I can do to fix it? Oh, and the winning lottery numbers, while you're at it. Thanx, Ron
