Hey y’all, dumb question time, and I’ve searched but haven’t come up with much, I’m trying to reinstall my starter that I took off a while ago when replacing my transmission, but I can’t remember where this black/yellow wire attaches. I assume it’s a ground because it’s bolted to the frame. Does it go under the nut circled in blue? Or somewhere else I’m not seeing? Is it not even attached to the started and I just unbolted it to get it out of the way ?
Thanks for the help

NO!!! Definitely not on the nut circled in blue. That connection is 12v straight to the battery. Bad things will happen if you ground that.

Thanks for the response, thats what I thought but I can’t seem to find anywhere else that it’ll fit/reach

I just looked at my truck and it goes from the frame to the mounting bolt between the starter and engine

It's a redundant ground wire. It attaches under a starter mounting bolt like in the picture below
