I need some help regarding replacing my old starter with a new style, smaller one.On 2006-02-26 11:39, 82GT wrote:
Here how it is on mine:
The battery side of the solenoid(bottom) goes to the starter. The other end of the solenoid(top) also connects to the starter which is a smaller gauge wire. You will know which wire connects where on the starter.
I "think" that what cadillac was trying to say.
I'll try and clear it up more if you're still confused.
That's the way mine is and that's how I was trying to explain it to him.On 2006-05-31 17:03, 66GT289 wrote:
I'd follow econodrag's recommendations. That's the way
they're supposed to work. And that is the way the Ford
Racing one is set up to work.
I bought my mini-starter from PA Performance and it
took a seperate relay to make it work properly.
Anyway, getting back to how my mini starter is wired. The included paperwork showed to attach the large (+) cable to the post on the battery, and then attach it to one of the large posts on the original fender mounted solenoid. It shows to attach the new (red) switch wire to the opposite side large post. The original Ignition switch wire doesn’t change and still attaches to one of the small terminals on the original solenoid.On 2006-05-31 12:47, econodrag wrote:
The way you need to wire a mini starter is run the big battery cable from your solenoid on the fender to the big post on the starter. The small wire needs to run from the small post on the starter to the same post on the fender mounted solenoid as the start wire from the ignition switch. This will eleminate any starter run on issues that will accure when hooked up the other ways.
I'm sorry dude, but I have to laugh at least a little bit at that badass drawing. It's in about the same league as most of my drawings.On 2006-06-01 09:48, econodrag wrote:
Here is a very crude diagram for you to see. This wiring will keep the starter from running on after you release the ignition switch. Don't laugh at my drawing.
