Question How to Install a starter. Does anyone know?

I need help people. I need to know if I am proceeding correctly. Do both battery cable positive and negative attach to the same copper bolt on a starter or does one attach with a mounting bolt to the engine block? All responses appreciated.

don't connect both cables on the same stud or you'l do much damage

Stick a 9 volt transistor battery on the end of your tounge to get an idea. You should for posting a question like that.

No need to be rude, she is asking for help. I find it funny how certain people on here keep telling others to fix their own car because it's cheaper than taking it to the shop and then they crucify them when they actually have a question about certain procedures.

Was doing a trace at work, and we didnt know it was stripped or hot, cause the underside was stripped(torn off, ripped off take your pick). guy i am working with says, grab that wire, then my arm went numb and i had a wierd tick for the rest of the day, it was pretty cool.
