    Engine is in Pinky and about ready to be fired up but mate has now trailered it to Oxford as he's moved and I can't remember for the life of me how it wires up..

    Got the black from the car that comes round the o/s chassis leg then the cable from the alternator and the agitator.

    Help would be awesome as I can't get under my car to look as it's too flipping low. lol

    The fat black wire and the thinner red wire from the alternator goes to the big stud on the starter.

    The solenoid trigger is a single pin plug.

    Then theres an earth wire that runs from the chassis leg to the engine mounting bracket.
