on this model, it's a straight shot from the battery clamp to the starter solenoid, located on top of the starter...should be 1/0 red battery cable with lolipop with a hole ends. will try to come up with a length spec for you but a 25" cable will do nicely.

Undo ground cable first and hook back up last.
