Ok but I have another wire which is the same size as the green one and it has a thing on end to go on stud with the power cables is that right? I changed the starter and it tries to start but wont fire up

Wiring diagram only shows two red and one green. You say 4 wires? What color is this wire?

Only three wires are shown. Where does wire go? Can you find what it connects to? Have you checked for spark at plugs? And does fuel pump opertae?
