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...
