Hi Gavin there is only 2 places to connect new starter motor wires and they only fit one way, they have these little bits of steel with a hole for the thread and nuts they only fit one way.dont understand how the main battery lead can be in contact.put everything back as per old starter motor.

Have you got a volt meter or test light
