Problem : MSD high torque and remote solenoid install won’t start

After installing this I’m not getting spark, it won’t start. I have power from “+” side of the batt to the left of the remote sol. then from the right of the remote sol. runs down to the large bolt on the starter. Then a jumper from the small terminal to the other large bolt which is jumped into the starter body. The two small terminals (yellow and black) on the remote solenoid go to the ignition system.... what’s next??

Re: Problem : MSD high torque and remote solenoid install wonít start

Deleted. Post a wiring diagram of what you have done. Several of your connections donít sound right as described....

Should look like this.

I’ll put some pics up.
So the left side was connected to the positive terminal of the battery and the right side went to the starter. The two small terminals went to the ignition.
On the starter, the large bolt is where the right side of the solenoid is connected. Then ran a jumper from the small (yellow in the pic) to the other large bolt on the starter.
Today I followed the wires from the solenoid through the firewall where there was a loose connection. The car started up beautifully after that.
