If it starts when you jump across the soleniod then the solenoid is no working.Does it click when you turn the key to start? Another hint that the solinoed is no good.
Your engine feed harness has three wires, one goes to the + side of the coil, one to the oil pressure sender and one to water temp. I do not have the book handy so cannot give you the colours. However I think if you replace your solenoid again it should start ok. If the wires still get hot after your replace it then you may have something shorting somewhere else that is causing this. But lets see if it will start on her own with the new solenoid first.

On the solenoid, if you installed a new one it can be faulty. If you overtighten the connections it turns the inside and damages the contacts.Use 2 wrenches when you tightend the wires to prevent the inside from turning.
Everyones ideas are reasonable and worth a look, that is why this forum is so great. .Never thought of that neutral switch, It can even be corroded connections there, if you have an automatic.
