The starter solenoid has very large contacts to carry the batterys full current. Its wire coil is actuated by a smaller current from the ignition switch, at which time the iron core slams down to make contact and turn on the starter motor. Most non-Ford starter motors employ a solenoid built into the motor itself. This type of solenoid not only provides the motors electrical power but also mechanically engages the starters drive gear onto the flywheel.
Wires are usually connected to components by plastic-covered terminals which push on to a blade on the unit called a spade terminal. Nearly all types of terminals should be fitted to the wire with crimping pliers. There are a few types such as the "Scotchlok" which are secured by clips. For additional security, you can add solder to the wire.
