Quick update - It's alive! Alive!!! <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/kewl.gif" alt="" /> I chose to install a 30 amp relay (Bosch type), using the ignition wire to operate the relay and power for the solenoid coming directly off the battery at the isolator. After cutting the wire directly behind the S-terminal connector, I found the copper was in good shape. So it appears the problem was in the connector. However, I think the starting circuit will be more reliable with the ignition powering a low-current relay instead of the starter solenoid. I will post pictures very soon... <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/cheers.gif" alt="" />
