Thanks you guys - that explains a lot. The starter switch of course tested positivity for continuity to ground and I couldn't understand why I had continuity from the small terminal to ground. I figured, wrongly, that a 3 pole solenoid was a three pole solenoid. I was in a rush to get this compression test done on a relatively warm day. I will get a proper 12V 8n starter solenoid.
