You have an issue with your wires somwhere......

"I" terminal on the starter should have 12v in start only, dead otherwise. This terminal supplies the coil with a full 12v while cranking etc....

"S" or "F" terminal on the starter should have 12v in start only, dead otherwise. This terminal gets 12v from the ing switch when the key is in the start position and makes the solenoid engage which in-turn makes the motor spin etc....

Large lug terminal on the starter goes to the pos post on the battery

Braided bare wire on the other lg lug, is the pos feed to the actual starter motor
