Ok, I just traced the big red wire back through the harness to the bottom of the alternator, "S" is what's labled on the connection so I assume starter? It's possible I didn't connect it when I changed out the starter to the Allente starter. Still trying to track down the purple one.
The rest of the connections on the alternator are: The single pole on the top of the backside has a red wire going to the terminal block under the C-500 and from there it goes to the battery connection on the back of the starter. Should the red wire I found go to the battery connection of the starter?
