Long story, but my 99 spec Miata has been collecting dust for over a year. I am finally getting around to reinstalling the engine in the car.  There are 2 copper studs on the starter solenoid.  I started working on hooking up the wires to the starter at the end of the evening.  I could only find one cable that would attach to the studs on the solenoid.  Can anyone help me with the wiring to the starter solenoid?  I'm sure it is probably obvious what I should be doing here, but I ran out of energy as I was working on this and could only find 1 cable.  Any constructive input would be appreciated.

The wire you found connects  to the top stud with a nut. The only other wire to the starter has a snap-on connector.

Thanks very much for the feedback!  Just to confirm, the middle copper stud has no cable going to it?
