Can anyone get me a good picture or drawing of how the wires to the starter should run? I am replacing my starter but I can tell the wiring isn't right. The main line from the battery is rubbing on a pulley and the other wire is draped on the cat. Both of them have a mounting clip but I don't see where they should mount to.

Just reroute cable so doesn't rub.

Many OE cables uses clips etc to stop rubbing. Even if you find a clip... clip can break.
Example 87 DIS Duke OE wire w/ clip runs right near WP pulley. Clip break then pulley will eat thru plastic and short out the battery.
Is better to find another route to avoid that problem because Shorted battery can dump 200+ Amps.

Opps - I guess that would help ... 88 with a automatic 4 cylinder

Thanks. I didn't even think about looking there. That takes care of that issue. To bad the new starter did help despite the old one testing totally dead.
