1 - Goes to the alternator, they are keyed and ponly fit one way.
2 - Goes to the Battery + terminal

3 - Big terminal onto the free big termina on the starter, Black and red to the starter solenoid. ( 3rd I am unsure of, whats at the other end? )

4- Big red one to the battery +12.
4- Black one looks like an earth I think, where does it go?

5- Brown earth on battery, red +12 on battery. Black I think this is an earth and joins to the earth on the starter cable.??

Hi Geeman hopefully i can help,

just been having the same problem with mine(should of took more photos).

3 - red goes to starter solenoid,
- black / red goes to starter solenoid,
- black negative lead put to one of the starter motor securing bolts.

4 - red to +12v
- black lead in background to to -12v
- other black lead attached to eng block (I used the lifting point bolt).

5 - put to +12v (supply hazards and fuses?).

Note - I'd add a couple of earth leads from you engine to chassis as well, just to be on the safe side.

Hope that helps, I've now got a problem with my ignition solenoid - Think i was a bit heavy handed with the pliers!!!!!

What engine are you using, and what have you done with the engine loom?

From your pics, your using a 1.8 CVH, so you should have the loom with the ESC-Hybrid ignition module. On this you will find the coil negative plug.

The coil +12v plug is part of the front body loom and not the engine loom ( I haver no idea why they did this )
