I can't answer your question but I reckon if you find and look at any Honda wiring diagram around that year it could provide some clues - the wiring colours are likely to be the same...

I'd give that wiring a really close and long look. You have correctly diagnosed the problem, but the question is what to address first. I'd stay away from the starter. That's not the issue. Somehow, you've melded two wires together "somewhere" that is by-passing the starter.

Your valve clearances should be:
Intake .08-.12 mm (.003-.005 in)
Exhaust .12-.16 mm (.005-.006 in)
I usually start all gaps in the middle of given specs, then fine tune from there.
Hope this helps
