Had engine and trans out and reinstalled. Know my engime harness is in really really bad shape. Went to try to start and nothing in crank position on key switch. Plenty of battery charge. Checked voltage at excitor wire on solenoid, 7 volts
But I get 7 volts on key on and cranking. Should not have voltage until switch is in crank position correct? Obviously I have an issue with resistance causing my voltage drop but more concerning to me is why do I get some voltage at key on?

Should be a Red/blue wire on the starter relay(solenoid), on the "S" post, smaller post, do not use the "I" post, if it has one

If its not a red/blue wire then you have the wrong wire

I will pull loom back but tagged each wire when removing and verify
