Hey Dollybud, heres what I did to to cure my heat soak problem. I wired it up just as OEM'S do on heavy truck (not pickup), and cats.
Positive battery cable goes from battery to origonal battery terminal on STARTER. Run a heavy gauge 6 or 8 from battery terminal on starter to remote (ford) solenoid-to one of the large terminals. This supplies B+ to solenoid. From other large terminal on (ford) solenoid run another heavy gauge wire to S terminal on starter. Disconnect origonal wire on starter S terminal and run it to S terminal on remote
solenoid. Other origonal wires on starter B+ terminal may be left there or moved to B+ terminal on remote solenoid-these are for power into vehicle for all accs.,ign.,lights.etc. There is no buss bar needed. On wires they can never be too big in my opinion. Hope this helps you as well as it helped me! Let me know
