74 Elite starter terminals and wiring

Recommended Posts

Hello, I'm working on a 74 Elite that has had lots of modifications done to the wiring harness(!). The starter has a terminal that I'm not familiar with... usually there are heavy wires to the battery and a small wire to the ignition switch. This starter has the heavy terminals for starter power, small spade terminal to trigger the solenoid, and an additional smaller stud terminal. Can anyone describe what this stud terminal is for?

Thanks!

Upgrade today to remove Google ads and support TLF.

The second small terminal is to supply 12v direct to the ignition coil bypassing the ballast resistor.

Hope that helps

Regards

Steve
