My aftermarket starter (I believe it's an sn95 starter) on my 88 fox went out on me few days ago. It was grinding against my flywheel so i replaced it with a stock starter from my 89 fox that im currently rebuilding but not using. I got the starter installed but I noticed the wires coming from the damaged starter leading to the battery were to separate wires, one big one small. The stock starter only has one so I hooked them both up to the stock starter thinking it would be fine, a starter is a starter, well lesson learned because after I installed the starter and I go to replace the battery terminals, once the negative touched the battery post my car( with no key in the ignition) immediately tries to start, and begins to drive forward. The car was in gear but I've never seen or heard of a car doing that. So question is, do I just take it out of fear and then put terminals on, or are those two wires on the starter not compatible with the stock starter and I basically messed up?
