Unless they cut the wires you shouldn't need a diagram. There are only two places to put them and both posts are radically different sizes.One takes a 5/16 wrench and the other takes 1/2 or 9/16. Just hook them up by their sizes. The small one goes on the inside terminal of the solenoid. Be careful tightening it because you can twist the end off and that can't be repaired. The rest go on the center post. Be sure to clean all the terminals before you put them on, bare shiny metal. It could save you a lot of grief later on.
If the wires were cut, the one for the inside of the solenoid would be the smallest guage wire, probably purple, but I have seen it other colors. The wires going to the center post will be a heavier guage wire and should all be red or pink.There should be at least 2 and they both will have a black pljug about 8 inches or so back from the starter. These are fusible links. They may be together on 1 terminal end but I have seen them separated. Hope this helps.

Mini Wini on a 1987 Toyota. New battery. Won't start.

Well if you replaced the starter solenoid it sounds like something as simple as a bad battery connection,I would take both battery cables loose and clean them off with something like some 100-150 grit sandpaper or they make a battery and battery wire connection cleaning tool.

Change starter on 1987 plymouth sundance. Tools needed

a rachet with extension... i think the bolts will be 13 or 14 mm. unhook the battery first. there are two bolts holding the starter on. remove those two bolts and pull the starter. do NOT remove the wires till you have the replacement starter in hand. transfer the wires one at a time from the old starter to the new one. reinstall the starter with the two bolts and hook up the battery when it is done.... should start with no issues.

How do i change the starter on a 1987 chev blazer

I am assuming your Blazer is an S10 4 wheel drive with a 6 cyl. engine (if i'm wrong...let me know). As you can see by this web link: (copy & paste)

The diagram shows that it is located under the vehicle and held in place by at least two long hex head bolts. Before removing it's a good practice to take off your positive cable at the battery first. Now remove electrical wires at the starter and then unbolt it, or sometimes its easier to get at the electrical wires if you unbolt it first, but be careful...the starter is quite heavy! Make sure to hold it up while unbolting so it won't just fall to the ground and possibly causing damage to the electrical wires still attached! Always better if you can remove the wires first to avoid that from happening. Now reverse the process to install your new one...and put your cable back on the battery. Hope I helped you!

How do i remove my starter on a 1987 chevy

Two mounting bolts. Two wire terminals. Disconnect battery first for safety. You may need to remove exhaust manifold or something to get at it. The starter is mounted with flat metal shims that adjust how it meshes with the flywheel. Save those and try various positions with your new starter till it doesn't make too much noise when you start.
