    Default Wiring Prestolite starter

    Can't find this in the search function..how do you guys/gals hook up your reverse rotation top mounted starter (BBC)? Mine has only the positive lug connection. Do I go from battery to remote solenoid then to starter?

    A remote Ford style solenoid is required to actually activate that style starter motor engagement and operation , your ignition solenoid wire will go to a small lug on the remote solenoid (S) and your large cable battery positive from the battery to the passive solenoid lug while the power out from the solenoid (large terminal) goes directly to the starter lug

    * the other small terminal on the remote can be employed as a "12v crank" circuit to ignition if desired (depending on ignition type)
