Ha Ha, i see, The small wire you remove is just the engergizer (how do you spell that!!) taking it off and putting straight onto the post bypasses the solenoid as its just a big magnetic switch.

Anyway im pretty sure its the starter thats had it by the sounds of it, particularly if its getting so hot.
