Do you think I should replace the battery harness? Both Positive and Negative?

no ,,a waste of time if its not the issue, a cleaning will show results then decide for replacement

Thanks for the information. will do.

If your battery is good and you hear one big click or no clicking (starter solenoid), your starter may be the problem. On an older vehicle like that, it is very easy to just jump the battery + terminal to the solenoid.
