Hello,

Here is a guide to show you how the wires go and how to test the starter.

https://www.2carpros.com/articles/how-to-replace-a-starter-motor

The 2 large eyelets go to the upper large lug, the one small wire will go to the smaller eyelet on the right side of the solenoid if you are looking right at it, here is a diagram to help. The image below shows how they go, the small black wire does not go to the starter.

Please let us know if you need anything else to get the problem fixed.

Cheers, Ken

Welcome to the forum. Don't let the starter fall and hit you. On the flywheel end, if there is a longer bolt, it goes to the inside.
