Engine Wiring Harness Help

I'm in the process of putting the motor back into my truck and I need some help from you guys.

On the main engine harness theres an orange and black large gauge wire that comes off both the starter and glow plug relays and runs behind the A/C compressor. Theres a wire eye on the end of that wire. Where does it connect to?

Thanks in advance guys

I'm not in front of my truck but I'm thinking chassis ground, if no one else chimes in I'll look tonight (in about 4 hours).

I'm thinking the same thing but I also do not have a truck to go look at.

I was torn between a ground or the positive post and I know I would have guessed wrong.

Ricemiester you can confirm that?

Glow plug relay is positive. And im assuming it goes to the alternator also. Most definitely positive. The only large grounds are battery terminal grounds. The rest are small or naked.
