>I'm in need of some clarification-? When I look on the Workshop Manual wiring diagram on page M:18:23, or the Electronic Ignition diagram on M:18:04, it looks to me like the Ignition ECU is fused thru Fuse #1. Are you referring instead to the wire that runs to the coil from the ignition resistor?

The ignition amplifier creates a spark by switching a ground to the 
coil. The coil has a permanent 12v feed (via the ballast resistor) which 
is not fused and this provides the energy used to create the sparks..

Current actually flows from negative to positive, but I can't rememebr why!
