    Pulled the engine out two weeks ago now i'm putting it back in and i forget where this wire went. Its either a ground or goes to the starter. I'm thinking it goes to the sterter but i already have a larger cable going to it. But i think i might have found in the wiring diagram that 2 large cables do go to the starter. I'm just used to 1 large cable to the starter. IMG_2854.JPG IMG_2859.JPG IMG_2861.JPG

    That's the main power cable from the battery, they both go on the starter.
    The other cable will go to the back of the alternator.
