Hi, thanks for posting

A code 12 is a loss of rpm signal from the distributor as you know, it can also be caused by a broken or jumped timing belt, remove the distributor cap and verify that the rotor turns when cranking and double check the timing by lining up the crank pulley at zero #1 TDC and check to make sure the rotor lines up with the spot where the #1 plug wire goes.
