Evicted node 3 while it was offline. Got it back online, still sees the cluster but is not participating. Node 3 is not listed under cluster management.

When you try adding node 3 back it says it already belongs to a cluster.

How can I add this node back to the cluster?

You'll have to remove the cluster service from this machine before you can add it back.
First separate this machine from the network, then try the "last node" option described here:
How to uninstall the Cluster service on a Windows Server 2003 cluster

If this doesn't work, try the command line option listed,
cluster node nodename /forcecleanup

Then re-join it to the cluster.
The usual precautions apply.
