Wiring starter???

Hello again everyone,
I come to all in a wonderous state... Exactly how is the started supposed to go? So far this is what I have, is it right?
BTW its a '73 914 2.0L with all stock

On drivers side bolt - red wire to alternator
On passangers side bolt - black to ground on battery
On closest to ground the think yellow wire from the relay.

I have the ground strap hooked up, (I think, do I just bolt it to the tanny?)

When I go to start the car, very loud gas pump (Is this normal) runs, then a hugh clunk from the starter... end of story. Someone said before that they short-circuted the two post termainals on the starter and it worked, why whould that be?

Ah, so close yet so far.

Thank you everyone so far for all the help.

P.S. I just got my plates for the car... In Michigan for historical plates (car must be 25 years old or older) I paid $30, and I dont need to register the car for another 10 years. So my Porsche now has a Apr 2011 sticker on it
