While removing starter to check if it was ok, I forgot to mark which of the wires go to which post on the solenoid/starter combo. 4 all together, need locations for the 3. The simple clip is easy enough to terminal "S" in the reference picture.

I need help with the other three wires.Do they all go to terminal "B", or do some go on terminal "M" with the permenent braid going to the starter. There are two heavy gauge wires with circle hoops, both red, one with a black cover that goes about 2 inches down and the other without black cover. And a small gauge wire also with a circle hoop. The starter/solenoid has two posts open for the three wires. The post closest to the starter has a (ground wire braid?) going to the starter. Please help!

The lower large lug "M" nothing goes on, The upper large lug "B" all of the other wires go on except the small trigger wire with the spade on it goes to terminal "S" Here is a guide that will show you how the job is done.
