Starter Wires???

Ok, I know there has been discussions and questions regarding this but I need to be very clear and have very clear instructions. I am in the middle of replacing my old clunky starter with a new mini start from Mike. Now as I look at the old starter and compare to the new mini starter I notice some differences. one of which is the placement of the connections. It seems there is two large connections and one small one on the mini while I can only see one large connector and one small one on the orginal starter. Now I only see connections going to the large connector that has the positive wire going to it. the small has nothing going to it. Now if I place the mini starter up in the same postition it would be once installed these connectors do not add up. On the mini there is a connector that already has something connected to it that is going from the solenoid to the actual starter, is that where the positive wire goes along with the red and brown wire? people who have the mini should know exactly what connector I am talking about. Is there more wires that get connected that I cannot see because of the placement or is there only what seems to be 3 wires (red,brown and positive wire) I think I feel some other wires but cannot be sure since I can only feel and not see.

Please see picture and maybe that might help everybody out. I know the picture sucks but something I did real quick in paint.

Thanks,

The large wires go on the large empty post. The small wire goes on the small post.

Read what Mike said. One of the larger posts already has a wire attached to it from the starter. Place your large-ringed wires on the post with nothing on it. I think it would be the lower post. Place the small-ringed wire on the small screw.
