IF YOU HAVE A POINTS TYPE DISTRIBUTER, THE WIRING WILL BE: TO ENERGIZE THE STARTER SOLENOID A LARGE, ABOUT A NUMBER 12 OR 14 GAUGE WIRE WILL GO TO THE INNER MOST SMALL TERMINAL ON THE STARTER SOLENOID. IT MAY BE PURPLE IN COLOR. THE SECOND SMALLER WIRE SHOULD GO TO THE OUTER SOLENOID TERMINAL AND GO FROM THERE TO THE + TERMINAL ON THE IGNITION COIL. THIS IS FOR BY PASSING THE RESISTOR WIRE FROM THE STARTER IGNITION SWITCH. THE LARGER BATTERY CABLE WILL GO TO THE UPPER TERMINAL ON THE STARTER SOLENOID. THERE MAY BE AN ADDITIONAL BATTERY FEED WIRE TAKE OFF FROM THE STARTER BATTERY TERMINAL POST ON THE SOLENOID FOR OTHER ACCESSORIES. THIS TYPE OF SYSTEM (POINTS TYPE) WAS TYPICALLY DONE AWAY WITH IN 1975 WHEN THE HEI DISTRIBUTOR CAME OUT.

I have a similar problem, 1976 GMC pickup, 350 cid. Good battery, engine started, drove about one mile, went to leave and nothing. Getting low voltage to cab. Disassembled power supply to fuse panel to clean out 'tar'. reassembled, no change. After continuing to chase low voltage, starter only clicking all of a sudden it continued to start after making clicking attempt. Shut engine off an now it will only click. At this point I am suspecting a starter.?

Wire 253 holden boat motor starter alternator coil basic diagram


batter positive to one big terminal of the starter solenoid--large wire as in a car ( the other big terminal will have a wire from it going into the starter)
a wire from the start point of the ignition switch to the small terminal of the start solenoid .( This to energize the starter solenoid to start the engine.) a large wire ( 30 amp capacity ) from the positive terminal of the battery going to the BAT terminal of the alternator the plug in the back of the alternator will go to the battery light or ammeter.. wires from the start and run positions of the ignition switch to the coil. One to provide power when the starter is engaged and the other from the run position to provide power to keep the engine running
basic but it will work

Which wires go where on a 2003 3.4 liter Chevy


There are three posts on the starter solenoid. Two large ones, and one small one. One of the large ones has a braided wire going into the starter. leave this one alone. On the other large ones, you will connect the positive battery cable as well as the large red wire coming from the alternator. The small purple wire connects to the small post on the solenoid. Lastly, on the engine block pointing the opposite way (towards the drivers side) is another stud and you will connect the negative battery cable to it.
Make sure that none of the wires can touch the other posts coming out of the solenoid.

6: Purple Starter actuator wire - 12V when key turned to start.
9: Positive Battery Cable
10: Positive Cable from Alternator

I picked up a 1988 Ford F150 6cy and the starter solenoid missing


I have provided an image that will assist you and it will connect like so;

1. Connection 1 should have the Pos. (+) battery cable and all of the wires with the large eyelet connectors from the wiring harness connected to it, except for the large cable that runs down to the starter.

2. Connection 2 should only have the large cable going down to the starter connected to it, and there should be no other wire connected there.

3. Connection 3 is the "S" terminal on the starter solenoid, and it is the wire with the small push on connector that is hot only when the key is in the "start" position, usually it is a red wire with a blue stripe, but that is not always the case.

4. Connection 4 is the "I" connection on the starter solenoid and it feeds current back into the ignition, and it is not used on a lot of vehicles after 1981, but if your vehicle has it it will be a small push on connector that will not have any power from it at all, and it will usually be a black wire with a white stripe, but that is not always so.

Cable from Battery to Starter


The starter will be positioned on the side of engine or gear box it looks like two round tubes on top of each other one small and one bigger there will be two wires going in to the smaller one of the two, the large wire is the main power feed from battery (the loose one) the smaller is the solinoid trigger wire.

Alternator: Old style alt with two wire plug on top back edge of case with internal regulator.: hot wire from start side of ign switch to a 10 ohm 6watt resistor, to terminal #2 on alt. Jumper wire from B+ large terminal on alt to term #2 on top plug. B+ wire to Battery. (70"s Cadillac wiring)
Distributor : 12volt from "run" side of ignition switch to distributor (using old style HEI dist. with vacuum advance and no computer connections) 12v can also be used to power aftermarket "upgrade" ignition.
Numbers are usually stamped into alt housing but if I remember correctly looking at the back the one on left is #1, right is #2 Battery (B+) is the large wire connection.

Wiring Diagram 1998 Chevy S-10 starter replacement


The starter has one large cable from the battery positive, and a wire that goes to the solenoid (Part of the starter) that becomes hot when the key ignition is turned to start. This also passes through the neutral safety switch. (So it wont start in gear) Not sure if this is what you need, a little vague.
