When you crank the engine there is no voltage coming off the ballast resistor. The voltage is coming from the solenoid and it should go to positive terminal of the coil. It bypasses the ballast resistor. It should read a full 12 volts when you cranking it and about 10 volts when the ignition switch is on the "on" mode. I don't know how you wired yours but this how standard chevy is setup.
