One from battery to the one side of solenoid, the other side goes to start motor.

The fusible links go where the battery wire attaches as they are feeds for inside the truck.

The remaining goes to the little stud on the solenoid as it is the tickle wire from ignition switch to energise the solenoid thus turning on the starter.
