I am going to try to clean the wiring up and replace what I can while I am waiting for the starter to come back from the shop.
Wow!! Hope all is going to be ok with you. That other driver better hope he had good insurance! Take care of yourself in the hospital!
What battery size did you use? Wanting to do this myself.
Not changing the way it's wired, just replacing some of the wires that have been spliced several times. The wire from the firewall to the starter has 4 splices in it!Get some new cables made at BestBoatWire. Fast service, not expensive, and great quality.
I'm wouldn't recommend re-inventing the wiring. Just replace the existing relay with a better quality relay. It only draws 9 amps, so any good quality automotive relay will do.
Some never have trouble with the starter relay. Some do.
