I had a similar issue, and finally loacted the problem by accident, the main injector pulse wire going to the injectors had broken, the break was located where the main harness running from the injectors going back to the firewall then bending up and back over to the main fusebox (autoshut down relay) while performing a volt check of the injectors I had moved the wiring harness and I got good voltage, after undoing all the heat shrink I found the break. I respliced the main wire, and I was G2G

Grounds can be the root cause of many electrical gremlins. (especially on RENIX vintage which is 87-90) Refreshing grounds is NEVER a bad idea!

You can't just check or look at these grounds. You must remove, scrape, clean until shiny the cable/wire ends and whatever they bolt to. The one on the back corner of the head, and where it attaches to the firewall. Scrape the paint from the firewall. Best to replace that woven cable with a #4 or #2 gauge cable. You can attach the one end to the intake manifold if you would like.

Next go over to the engine dipstick tube stud. Remove the nut and clean the wire ends and scrape the block until shiny at the stud. Reattach tightly.

If you are so inclined, add at least a #6 cable from the negative terminal of your battery to one of the bolts on your radiator support. Scrape the paint off first.
Without data, all you have is an OPINION!
