I bet I know what your problem is, been there, done that.
You say the cable between the solenoid and starter gets hot. That cable 
has a cable shoe in each end. One of those have a little weak contact 
with the cable. Over time this contact will weaken even more. Eventually 
there will be no contact at all. If you look closely you can probably 
see that the plastic isolation has melted in one end. Resolder that 
cable shoe and your problem will be solved.
