One of the early questions was whether disconnecting the alternator changed anything. Apparently not.
So we have been through the possible causes:
1. Feedback from alternator. No, it makes no difference when disconnected.
2. incorrectly adjusted ignition switch. No, there is no power to the Red/white wires in STOP/OFF.
3. Faulty solenoid. No, it can be disconnected and makes no difference.
4. Wired coil to a Red wire (permanently on). No it turns on and off OK if it has not been running.
I am stumped. The only thing I can think is that this is an intermittenet feedback issue and the diode is still needed. It is a cheap and quick bit to install.
