91 Daytona starter wont work - relay?

So my Daytona wont turn over. I figured starter so I pulled it and then checked it against another good used starter and they both work, but I tossed the used starter in anyways. No go. When I turn the key to try to start the car the starter relay just clicks. Should it do that? And the 91 cars have the big fuse panel in the engine bay with relays in there. I have no spares unlike the 87,88 etc ones. I also have an old automatic car starter which was giving me some problems and noticed the end of one fo the power leads to the starter melted a bit so I wonder if I should check the rest of the wiring for a possible issue, but Id like the rule out the relay first before I go digging through wire looms etc. Thanks.

87 Daytona Shelby Z 2.5 T2-> cummins cooler, 3" exhaust, S60, forged venolias, Shel-game custom 3 bar cal 18 psi... ported +1 head Lookin to go low 13's.. extra lean - need a good tune and hopefully the new 4 puck holds up.

Re: 91 Daytona starter wont work - relay?

The starter relay is located in the PDC.
The easiest way to check the relay itself on your car is to swap the starter relay with another relay from the PDC.

If you still experience the same issues then you need to check power and ground.
There will be two power feeds, a ground and an output to the starter.
One power feed will be constant battery power,the other will only be present with the key in the "start" position.

PM being sent.
