Cable connections for power distribution center 1997

Finishing a tub off rebuilt of my 97. PDC has a red, hot wire going in from battery, but where does the output wire from it hook up? I have it on the starter. If thats right which post? My starter cranked over twice then quit. Battery is good, relay is switching. Just not sure of PDC connection.

Every fuse in PDC has its own output wire gotta be a little more specific or maybe a picture of which terminal or wire you are asking about

Im talking about the two main cables coming into and out of the box. One connects to the positive terminal of the battery and the other one bolts to where?

There is only one main cable going in not two

Lots of people get power there for add ons but stock just a power in which the box distributes to all the fuses and power out is via the fuse outputs

The whole idea is to have only one short wire run that is not fuse protected and that is from battery to the PDC

Figured this out on my own today. There is a wire in and a wire out from the PDC. In wire is from the positive terminal and the out wire goes to the alternator. The alternator connection us what I was missing...a real duh, head smack moment when I figured that out.
