Question about 1988 Ford F 150
I replaced tha starter and cant find if i have the correct wires going to the correct terminals on hte starter
installed on the truck there is a top large post and one on the bottom.
i have the red pos cable on the top post and the neg on the post closest to the actual starter. is this correct because the truck still wont start. i already checked the relay and it is ok. thanks for your help.
the negative wire should be attached under the head of a mounting bolt for the starter
the circuit is that the power goes into the positive terminal ( big terminal) through the solenoid when activated out the second big terminal through the fields and armature to ground
the power to activate the solenoid is either from a power wire from the ignition switch to a small terminal on the solenoid through the windings to ground that activates the solenoid and closes a set of contacts in the solenoid to allow the power across the 2 big terminals

this is actually a quotation from a site on the net as i've wondered about it to
"Speaker wire has a mark or strip on one of the conductors this is to indicate polarity of the wire. When installing speakers to the output of an amplifier you need to observe the proper polarity. This is particularly important when installing a surround sound system with front and rear speakers. If the polarity is not followed then the results will be poor balance of sound and even cancellation of some frequencies."
