Hi There, On My 1970 13/60 Herald, the cable goes from the positive post to the starter solenoid (mounted on the bulkhead below the battery) then the solenoid to the starter. Hope this helps. Let me know if you want a photo.


The positive cable should go from the battery to the starter solenoid which is right next to the battery. The starter cable comes out the other side of the starter solenoid and this is what connects to the post on the back of the starter.
