Hmm If I'm not mistaken this should be it right??

I mean to me that looks like it's it, and maybe you use one of the other 2 for a ground? Jeeze it's been a while since I did mine, I forget how it's wired up

Oh-boy! Isn't somebody from 1970 going to want their starter back?

That looks like an old Positive-Engagement starter from yesteryear, as found on small-block Fords. 460's got a Solenoid-Actuated starter instead, as did your Bronco of the 90's.

Is this for some non-Bronco project? OK if it is, but tell us first

There is only one electrical connection to a P-E starter. Some had it on the end-cap as the one in your pic, most had it on a post that stuck out through the side of the starter.

Then need a starter relay that was made to take the current of the starter.

EDIT - Didn't the 351 Cleveland take a starter like that? Will it even properly mount and engage on a trans behind a Windsor? I sure don't know.

351Mutant does, the C and W probably did as well. I was a bit confused but I've never seen a starter besides my own stuff.

Google gave me this as a 96 starter.... Yikes!

I have a 93, and have two solenoids, one on the passenger side fender, and another on the starter itself. Interesting that a 96 would only have one.

Let me clarify my original statement.

The aformentioned starter is an aftermarket piece that came with a ford crate motor that I purcased for my 96 bronco. Also have since learned that my 96 bronco has 2 solenoids one on the starter as well as one located on fenderwell next to battery. The starter in question does not have a mounted solenoid so can I use starter on bronco or do I have to add another solenoid?? Or would it be easier just to buy a stock oem replacement starter?
Thanks.

I would buy a oem replacement starter, but that is just me.
