THe starter issue has nothing to do with the HEI. You have a problem with the power to the solenoid. It could be the ignition switch, the relay or possibly a bad connection in the smaller wire to the solenoid. Sometimes the accessory hot wire gets eaten up with corrosion and then it cannot carry enough amperage to make the solenoid work. Clean and tighten the battery terminals and check the accessory hot wire.

It is possible that a 1963 does not have a relay between the ignition switch and the starter solenoid.

Tried 2 starter and same results on both, getting to rewire the complete truck, hope this will solve the problem

Good luck. Those trucks are worth fixing up.
