Good morning and thank you for your help. I have done a search and couldn't find definitive answers. I am finally able to get back to work on the Cobra and want to start it this weekend. I am running a carburetor with an MSD Controller box. Wiring directly to the mini starter I am not sure where all the wires go. I have a large stud with a nut and a small electrical blade terminal. I have the battery cable, the wire from the alternator and the heavy red wire from the MSD box to the stud. Is this correct? What goes to the blade terminal? Is that for the start wire from the ignition switch? I have modified a drawing but I am not sure how to add it to this post.

The small terminal would be to power the solenoid at the starter. This will be the key/start position on your ignition switch. It should be powered when the key is turned to start.

The large stud will be fine for all the other wires you have there. This is your "common" terminal given the fact you aren't using a relay.
