Not in a TBI unit.

Did you ever order the factory service manual? If so, I'd check back to the ASD relay and see if there's a problem between them (since it's usually fed off the ASD).

Also, do be aware you won't see 12V there but for about 2 seconds on key-on until it starts running.

Have you tried bypassing the ASD to see if you then have 12V at the coil?

Does the fuel pump prime? Do you see power at the coil when you first turn the key on??
