I can show you. I've done this on all of my rigs,  the last of which is the
73 t-all I picked up this summer. This is the only vehicle that got this
change without a starter change at the same time. I needed a new set of
battery cables, so I paid the extra 8 bucks for the solenoid and the 4 bucks
for the short battery cable.

This change is so simple that you will be able to draw it by hand just by
looking at it. There was a write up in the SDS newsletter a few years ago, I
think by Jim Giordano, but it really is a simple change.
