What style ign? If you have that "white rctangular block", you are dealing with a points ignition, as that is commonly referred to as a ballast resistor. This will cause a higher RPM backfire and engine kill, if it is weak(too much resistance). Basically you won't get enough voltage to the coil to produce an arc at the plug gap under high RPM or load. Not enough Kv. If the resin is melted, it's a good sign that you probably need a new one.
