    I took my starter off last December because it was no good. It was really cold out and I wasn't dressed right so when I took it off I was in a hurry and forgot how the 4 wires go on the starter.

    If anyone knows the orderfor how the wires connect to the starter/soliniod let me know. I called a couple places and they don't know or won't help.

    There are 2 really thick wires, and one medium. and one small. There are 2 big studs on the soliniod, and the small one. Then there is a stud on the big part of the starter in the back.

    Thank You all!

    How about a picture? If its like a every other starter big one go on the big post and the small ones go on the small post that would be to the inside of the motor if it was mounted..Really would like a picture..If you get the small wires crossed nothing will happen,sparks flames etc.
    It just wont crank. But if you ground out the big wires,watch out 4th of july..
