i'lll bet you 20 to 1 it's your relay. i had the same problem with you. i changed every single wire to my starter, and still the same problem. i added grounds, changed terminals, cleaned everything, same thing. i changed my starter like 8 times (got pretty good at it too), and same thing. finally, i gave up, and bypassed the starter switch and installed a jumper wire to the starter engage wire (smaller of the two wires). i took that and touched it to +battery whenever i had the problem, and BOOM, always worked :).
