kind of in a self induced situation here, I cut the wires to bypass the fuse maybe 6 months ago and stepped away from the bench. Now Im not sure which wire back to the gearbox is positive and negative. If someone could look at there harness for me and look which one of the thick gauge wires is positive and negative I would be so grateful. One wire has printed words, which in my experience means positive and the other does not. Can someone please help me out and take a look?

I'm not quite sure which wires you're asking about. Do you mean the two black wires, one of which connects to the fuse? Here's a pic of my SR10's wiring harness:

Plug in a battery. Match up the corresponding polarity from the wire insulation color. Red is Positive, Black is Negative.

I agree the wire with: writing, flat or a white line is usually positive. You can remove the buffer tube and check the wires that come out of the gearbox to see where the wire with the writing is connected. Or use a volt meter set to ohm and test for a short with the cut wire & motor wire. Pull the trigger for positive, negative goes directly to the battery, no need to pull the trigger
