Universal starter terminals

This question is about the original starter on a Universal M4-30.

I'm trying to replace the yellow/red starter solenoid wire, or at the very least disconnect it and clean the terminal.

The terminal is hidden in a strange little metal box next to the big positive terminal stud.

Try as I might, I can't see into that box. I've used an inspection camera, groped around with fingers, even used an ipod camera. What the heck is in there? Is there a screw terminal? Some photos of replacement starters seem to feature a spade terminal. I don't want to just pull on the starter wire unless I know there's a spade at the other end.

Does anyone here know what I have to do to remove the yellow/red wire from the starter solenoid?

Re: Universal starter terminals

Replying to myself: it's a (1/4-inch?) male spade terminal. The opening around it is just slightly too small for a modern waterproof female spade. Putting this back together is going to be interesting. I'm off to Sailorman for parts.
