I inherited someone elses problem. The engines in the cradle but none of the wires/sensors were hooked up, most are easy enough, but I want to make sure that I hook up the right wires to the big post of the starter. I have the battery cable, plus a set of 3 red wires connected to one post connector, one of these red wires (about a 10 guage red wire) runs directly to the alternator, the third set of red wires is the question. It is four red wires all hooked a single post connector and the run back into the wiring harness, does this also belong on the big post of the starter?

The battery cable and all the red wires go to the main post. The only wire that goes elsewhere is the purple wire that goes on the small "S" terminal
