It should have batery cable at large stud of starter, 12 on S terminal when starting and negative cable should be running to frame with a ground starap from engine to frame or directly to engine with a ground strap running from engine to sheet metal. You can use one half of jumper cables to experiment with your ground. Let me know how it goes and I can help further if needed.
