Starter relay wiring 92 Mustang GT?

Hi,
I got distracted while replacing the starter relay ( next to battery ) on my son's 1992 Mustang GT, and failed to note what went where... Looking at the wiring diagram in the Haynes manual is not helpful; it shows that the connection to the battery and the one to the starter go on the same terminal of the relay, which doesn't make a lot of sense to me!
So, I am assuming that the correct wiring is for all the connections to go on the hot ( battery side ) except for the heavy black cable ( red sleeve at terminal ) which heads around the front of the engine, to the starter I assume, and a smaller black cable that seems to fall naturally onto the switched side. Anyone able to confirm this?

Thanks in advance,
Chris

Here is all I could find real quick....



Disconnect the negative battery cable from the battery.

Disconnect the positive battery cable from the battery terminal.

Remove the nut securing the positive battery cable to the relay.

Remove the positive cable and any other wiring under that cable.

Tag and remove the push-on wires from the front of the relay.

Remove the nut and disconnect the cable from the starter side of the relay.

Remove the relay attaching bolts and remove the relay.

Installation is the reverse of removal.

As I recall... on mine the battery cable goes to the top. The cable to the block goes to the frame.

Here is a pic of mine...it's on the pass fender..
