will it have instructions on how to hook it up

yes, or any small engine shop. you will wire red wire from the battery to one side of the solenoid and the other side of the solenoid will take a power wire to the starter. grounds by bolting it to the frame of machine. will be a small wire from the ignition to small post of solenoid
