I recently went down my list and fixed almost everything that needed attention on my 86. I replaced the radiator, added an electric fan, thermostat, hoses, water pump, AC clutch, brake proportioning valve, air intake, transmission cooler, and serpentine belt.

I went to start it today and it won’t crank. I have power. My battery is getting 11-12 volts, there is power at the starter relay. What could be the problem here?

Haha, ive done that. Was convinced my AC was broken but i just turned it off, lol
Like my Radio.. If you press the " OFF " button once it only mutes it, have to hold the 'OFF" button down to turn it off... I would get it "locked up" in mute mode... Glad I am old, the world is going to leave me behind soon...
