    I am going to be putting my starter back on tomorrow but the starter has been off so long I can not remember witch little threaded bolt the little wire goes to on the solonoid. I think one has a R beside it and the other one has an S.

    Could somebody tell me which one it is? And is it just one little wire going to it?
    Thanks for the help,
    Matt

    The little wire goes on the bolt that is furthest from the ground, with the starter installed.

    Just one wire on that one. Be careful with the fusible wire /forums/images/graemlins/blush.gif. It doesn't take much bending.

    Your small wire goes to the "S" terminal. Should only have one wire going to that threaded stud.

    Thanks for the help /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif
    I would hate to have put the starter in and find out I used the wrong threaded stud.
    Thanks again.
