should only have 3 wires...

main cable direct from battery to solenoid

other side of solenoid goes to starter internals

then the small wire from ignition switch to solenoid

 

from memory, it was quite common to have a bad connection/break in the small wire close to solenoid...between where it comes off the chassis below the rad and the solenoid

 

whereabouts is this wire thats fallen off?

I dont know :-( its a thin black wire which ran under the radiator it seems the connector sheared off :-(

 

Looking at the starter motor there is a cable from the battery to the starter and an earth from the starter attached to the solenoid

 

:-( iam p'd off because it wont start now

that threaded connector to the right of main cable is the one you want, i take it the black wire you have has no connector on the end.

 

i seem to remember the wire used to break around the point it appears from under radiator..again from memory, .check your engine mounts etc as its excessive movement in the engine that causes the problem.

 

that connector is just a push fit, like the ones they used to attatch to the ignition coils...but if you have no connector on the wire, or able to get a replacement. think you'll find that as its threaded, it takes a 10ml nut, best way to attatch is fit a nut first [dont overtighten, just nip it up] , then attach a small ring type terminal to wire, slide that on then fit another nut on top, again, dont overtighten.
