I put a new after market starter in. It kicking but she wont start. The new starter has one small wire plug , while the old one has 2. On the old one gos to the dizzy and the other gos to a relay. On the new starter ive tried both wires together on the one plug and both single and still wont start. I havnt changed anything else and it worked before. Do I need to wire it up different ?

EVERY Holden V8 starter has/needs 2 wires ... from HT to VL
big thick mother to supply the juice to drive the motor and a small thin wire to kick off the starter solenoid (and this should if possible go thru a relay)

dunno what you bought.... but have never seen a Holden V8 (253,308 etc) with only one wire
