If Onan controller grounds the line to the solenoid coil, and Ford solenoid has a grounded coil to start with, nothing would happen. You'd hear the click of the other control relay(s), but the cranking solenoid would never pull in.

Mine wasn't as bad as yours, but I did have to replace the relay in your picture 006. I used the following part. The relay manages all the safety switches. You Don't have to use this one, I just happened to have it. This one has one or two extra contacts you don't use.
