    "Searay, On my 4.3LX, the starter solenoid secondary (large copper post, with 11/16" nut) gets the battery cable, orange wire to the alternator, two or three red and red-yellow wires. Basically all the wires that are not black and have the large ring terminals. The smaller red-yellow wire runs from the slave solenoid to the starter solenoid primary winding, and is the only one on it. My boat has a mechanical fuel pump. If yours is electric, the wiring may be a bit different."
