Starter Connections

Recommended Posts

The starter on my Bosch starter has 2 connections on the solenoid: An 8mm stud, and a male spade terminal.

The spade is obviously for the 3mm starter relay cable. Am i correct in thinking then that the main cable from the battery AND the main alternator cable both go to the 8mm stud?

On a (slightly) related note, I had upgraded my alternator to 100 Amp and was looking for some suitable fatter cable in the appropriate brown colour, but could only find red at the larger sizes (checked VWP, Autosparks and Polevolt). Made do with 2 x 63 Amp brown cable. Anyone know where I could source fatter brown cable, or would two lengths of thinner cable be fine?
