Will try Prevost tomorrow if can't figure out today. Relay should be 12V(nom) with a 24V 50DN alternator? Juts have to check before I try from external source.
No charger connected. Thanks...

Well, you need to have good contact between all three cable ends. If I'm not mistaken, you now have two new cables in the stack, so those should be corrosion free. I would take a large file and clean up the battery cable end so you can get good contact with the other two. Stack them together with a dab of dielectric grease, put the washer on top and tighten nut. Use and ohm meter to ensure you have no contact with the frame.

Just remember, when you blow out the candles on your cake today, and it sets off the smoke alarm ....  Oh well, y'know? 

You know you are old when you can remember a time when you didn't have to have a password for anything!

Happy Birthday my old friend ... I wish you well.

They were individual wires that ran in the conduit with the cable, from just outside the junction box until the cable reached the frame stud, curbside. They then came out, and went into a tube that ended at the starter.
When I reconnect that cable, I'm going to add three 10ga wires, so as you suggested, I can wire the start circuit correctly at some point. I will dip all of the ends in several coats of liquid electrical tape until I'm ready for them.

It only took 4 days of soaking in PB Blast to remove the screws and the old frame stud. I also followed your advise again and had Luke send me a new one.
I'm going to clean up the engine area, (with steam...NOT Brakecleen) fix the holes in the fiberglass that I can reach with the engine in-frame (where all the cable hangers came loose) install the new frame lug and hook up everything except the starter. (I want to double check everything before I add my new starter to the system).
So now I have a plan...BUT...

The only issue I have at this point is that the 4/0 cable (big one from the battery)  literally welded itself to the large washer. If I remove it, I don't think the copper end will be as it should, I am NOT replacing that 35' 4/0 cable, and there is no way I can cut it off and add a new end. It would be too short, and there is nothing there strong enough for me to beat a new end on.  So, I'm going to try to make sure both sides of it (married to the washer) are clean and smooth...to prevent ANY chance of even the slightest arc. I don't ever want to see another arc...unless I change my name to Noah Smiley
If I can't get it right, I'll update again.

The new stud and washer aren't copper but it shouldn't matter. BUT, do I separate and stack the three cables with the washer, or stack them together with the washer on top?
The 4/0 cable as installed, was connector face down, washer on top of it, if it matters. I never moved it.
