Have you checked the compression? If not, i would get that checked out first. Sounds like your losing compression somewhere. Also, it could be off time.

No power. Battery fully charged. There is a black box that hooks to the ground cable with two wires plugged in to it. If I play with that, move it and stuff it seems to restore power. What is the black box...

IF you have cleaned both ends of the battery ground wire - and a confident that it is well connected.... follow the black box wires to their ground connection....
the battery ground goes to the two small wires. Those two wires provide ground to the CCRM and PCM if they are not connected correctly they can kill the CCRM or PCM modules. From the described location, I believe you are looking at the CCRM-which manages the starter relay, air conditioner and lots of other stuff....Verify good connect of those wires to ground and I believe that your problem will be gone!!

Car just stopped running. Lost power suddenly.

Find an inductive pickup indicator for spark. Place on distributor cap to see if spark is at coil internal tower. If no spark at internal tower, look at ignition module or pickup coil. Ignition modules are prone to failure on 626's. But if you have spark at tower but not at the wire end, then your rotor is gone.
