okay here goes:
from the positive terminal of the battery to the one side of the solenoid goes the big positive wire
from the other side of solenoid to the starter motor lug goes another big ass wire
from the starter switch to the solenoid goes a thin wire that powers the electromagnet that flips over the solenoid.
Recoil has no wires but the bendix has to go in before putting on the starter motor.
All wires are positive as the system gets its ground from the frame.
Think of it as a hose trying to get water from the battery to the starter motor. battery ----> one side of solenoid -----> other side of solenoid -------->> starter motor lug.
