run the heavy gauge wire from the battery cable side of the solenoid to the starter. this will be hot all the time. run the small wire from the solenoid on the starter to the other large terminal on the original solenoid. where the old starter wire was hooked to.

X2 that way you don't have to run any of the other wires for the charging system and assy to the new starter

Tilton says to do it that way . It does keep the bendix engaged too long as it's still engaged when the engine fires up. Ford wires them like the post from Wayne says. I did my F350 this way using the EFI Ford high torque starter and it is trouble free.

Depending upon WHICH starter combination you now have and its amperage requirements, there are a few different ways it could/should be wired.

If it is a Ford Racing starter then simply move the battery cable on the fender solenoid coming from the starter to the same side as the cable coming from the battery; (the other side from where it is now).  Then, run the small 16 gauge wire from the starter combination to the pole on the fender solenoid where that cable used to be.
(As Wayne has already said).

I wire back like I had it thru solenoid on firewall.Check the volt on hot side and it was 12.6.Then I check it at starter when I was turning the engine over show 9 volts is this good or should it be higher.I put ground strap on engine to frame and it helped cause it would hardly spin over before.Plus I put new wire and terminals on battery and new ground wire to chassis.I have summit starter on it thinking about going 16 volt battery and better starter.

This is the correct way. If you want your starter to last.

I guess so on a door car if the battery is up front, but with a long run, I want the hot battery cable to be hot only when starting. JMHO
