Jim, Do those clocks have the fusible link inside of them? The clocks that self wound did.

When the battery voltage dropped from a charged state the Voltage went down which in turn caused the amperage to go up, causing the fusible link in the clock to open.

In that case your relay kit was designed correctly as it prevents this from occurring.

Subject: [T3] 1971 Relay Kit Revision

A few years ago, I designed a kit of 3 relays to be installed in 1971 cars to
take all the load off the unobtainable 1971 ignition switch. I noticed that my clock didn't seem to be keeping good
time at all. Only later did I realize that this was because I had wired the clock
to lose power whenever the key was off.

There are 3 of you out there who have bought those kits from me. I'd like to
send you instructions for how to fix this problem, along with revised
installation instructions, in case you haven't done the installation yet.
