BSA Lightweight Magneto uncertainty

Got all the new parts for the Magneto and started to put together but find I can't remember where to fit the solid unsheathed connection( is it an earth connection?). The old unit had a sheathed cable. I attach a photo.

Any idea where I can connect this?

The image has not made it but

The image has not made it but....

the coil will have the plug lead, an insulated lead that goes to the points and  an Earth lead - bare or insulated that is grounded onto the stator. The lead that goes to the points will probably share that terminal with one from the condenser. 

If your engine has a kill switch it will have one terminal earthed and one with an insulated lead to the points.
