Neither of my '81 4ks had any load-reduction relays, despite what the Bentley 
might show ... nor did my '85, as  I recall, but that was a grey-market car 
and it may have been different than the US-spec cars.  In each case, though, 
I was only getting 10vdc (or less) at the connector I mentioned previously 
and the starter would not crank.  With 12vdc or more,  it cranked fine.

Or the wiring to and from the switch...
