My 2 cents..... The Ford solenoid in the trunk to maintain a dead cable while not running etc...... Why?..... if run properly the cable won't chafe and short out for that terrifying meltdown everyone keeps talking about, but I've never actualy seen. and if you really do have a fear of that..... put in a 150 amp Maxi fuse yadda yadda.....

As far as your starter, not sure if your starter has 4 or 3 terminal on the solenoid....if a 4 terminal .... you should have a "I" terminal, supplies 12v pwr to the old coil/points setup, while the engine is cranking, yell or white wire, if yours has been upgraded to an HEI system this could be the pwr source for the HEI while cranking wtc....

and a "S" terminal that get 12v from the ing switch....purple in color
three terminal doesn't have the "I" terminal
