starter motor dramas continuance ... grrr

So I thought I had it sorted, car was starting first click every click for the last few weeks, then .... Fkn tick tick tick.. Bloody thing started acting up yesterday.
What I noticed was that the brand new relay (30amp fused 4 pronged relay) i put in to replace the old I figured was faulty, was getting warm to the touch even when the car was not running, ignition off. So I disconnected it and the car starts first click again.
My question is that it has always had a relay there its factory loom leading to it, but what the hell does it do?

starter motor issues...

ok my 202 has a starter motor issue which is sending me batty..
1: it sometimes starts first click. no worries at all.
2: sometimes it throws out and just clunks without engaging.
3: sometimes it just clicks and I have to tap it.
4: sometimes it just spins without engaging.
5: sometimes it will start 1st click, but if its cold and doesnt stay idling, itll just click and not start.
usually one of these things happen when theres a problem, not every symptom in the book at different times.

starter motor issue

just would like to know what would cause a starter motor to not stop working even when the ignition is off and I had to disconnect the battery to stop it from operating...
is that a solanoid issue? if I put another solanoid on it will that fix that or is the starter motor kaput?
cheers
Grant

350 holley fuel rich running issue

for some reason my holley 350 is leaking fuel in the vacuum chamber behind the power valve making my car run really rich, but still pretty good.
I have a lumpy cam in it, with 107 lobe sep and 287 #50 duration with 430 valve lift.
the vacuum is at 13inch which is normal for a hot motor to have low vacuum like that, so ive got currently a 7.5 power valve.
at first I thought the power valve that was in it was faulty so I replaced it.
