12.2 volts at the battery
12.2 volts at the battery side of the solenoid, 0 volts at the starter side, when circuit is open
12.2 volts at the red/blue ignition trigger wire when voltage is key is in the ON position, 0 volts key off position.
12.2 volts to the starter side of the solenoid when solenoid is triggered at the S terminal, circuit closed, 0 volts when open
Continuity checked on the fender mounted solenoid, positive cable, starter cable, and ground cable to block, 2nd ground to firewall, and 3rd ground cable from block to frame. Found the cable to starter to not be completely tight but had no effect on my problem.
In typing this I may have realized my problem which i will investigate more tomorrow. I should only have 12v to the S terminal when cranking not when the key is in the ON position, so I am getting power from somewhere I shouldn't to ignition.
87 Coupe work in progress.
