starter wiring

Need some help guys. The battery is in the bed of my 2002 S10 . I've run my battery cable to a Ford solenoid on the firewall and connected it to the left side stud of the solenoid. From here I will use another cable to run to the starter. Now I need a cable to the front because I have a junction box that needs power because that goes to my main fuse box under the hood. Can I run maybe a 2 gauge cable from the starter lug to this junction box for my fuse box power? Oh yea by the way can I use the leftside stud of the solenoid for other things like maybe stereo, my MSD box and such?I know to fuse all that stuff too!! I hope I made sense! Thanks in advance.

a sol is an electric switch, the large lugs, one side hot all the time and the other momentary, to spin the starter.

put the fuse box feed on the same side as the cable from the batt, 10 gage wire will handle 100 amps plenty for your fuse box. The smaller lugs, one is for the signal, current or voltage from the start side (momentary) of the ignition / start switch. "S"

The other small lug is ignition controlled by the key on position "I" MSD could hook up there if you like. as to cd player use the fuse box for the voltage
