    This will work fine as long as the problem is with the contacts in the solenoid and not with the coil. The busbar will short out the solenoid contacts and the remote solenoid provides the power to the starter motor and the solenoid in parallel. But if the problem is with the coil, the motor will spin up but it won't engage the gear onto the flywheel/flexplate.

    That looks like a Delco starter, shouldn't be difficult to get hold of a new solenoid if you do need one.

    yes Zephyrc is dead right I've had to do it on all my chevy's what happens is the coil gets hot and the hotter it get the more resistance you get in the wiring so if you try the screwdriver trick and the motor turns over then wire up the remote solenoid as zephyrc says and you'll have no problems

    Thanks for broadening the picture and highlighting issues I hadn't even considered Stueeee. Always good to keep an open mind. The issue I had however is that nothing happened at all when I tried to start when hot = heat soak. The screwdriver trick did indeed work so Zephyrc's plan seems the logical way forward at this stage.
    Thanks for the input good people
