One thing that bothered me a little was the red, what I assume is a power cable is touching the solenoid housing which I think is grounded, so I would bend it up just slightly to put some clearance between them it may never happen but I'm remembering it was a power cable that rubbed through on Randy's Burned 'Bird.

John, you are correct I believe that red cable is a battery bus lead.

Interesting after battle analysis of warning symptoms!!!!
For weeks, Engine DC volts would drop below 12 volts if headlights were used and sometimes heater/A/C fan turned on. After new solenoid, the voltage is ALWAYS at 12 v or above. An early warning sign?? of course could have been something else.
