Default sb 350 starter help

Ok so I need to know how this starter wires up. It has one big post for the battery lead and then has 2 small posts. How do I figure out which post the small wire goes to? And should there be a ground wire to the starter? Thanks again.

It does ground thru the block--but if you want to aid in cranking however you can run a ground wire from starter bolt back to the battery--use proper size. Starter is one of the largest electrical draws when engaged and can use all the help it can get. Plus its a second ground for the motor.

Ok I think I'll do that, it sure won't hurt anything. Thanks.
