I see three bolts for wires on the starter.

A large bolt with a heavy gauge and two wires to the middle...

A small bolt on the engine side with a wire.

and a small bolt on the other side with nothing.


What's the bolt on the other side with nothing for?

Thanks,

Not used on your car. It supplies 12v to the coil for startup on a points car

One is for the ground cable.

The other for the "fusible link" (helps prevent fire from starting)

The other is the battery cable

The fourth one is what the other reply told you. (I can tell you what. If you hook anything up there, it will not start the thang.)

If you ever get rid of the OEM like I did and buy a mini. You will have to hunt for the parallel hole opposite where it bolts on like I had to do. Almost drove me nuts trying to find it until I dropped the flywheel cover. Hope that helps. :cheers:
