The great thing in this case is that Ford used a firewall or fender
mounted starter relay for many years after everybody else moved it to
the starter itself and made the solenoid move the starter gear. Ford
used a rather odd split core starter to do the gear engagement and used
the relay to connect the starter and short the ignition ballast long
after they quit using the Bendix drive.
