  Someone may have broken the lug off of the wire and then put the wrong 
one on it because they forgot where it should be connected.  If it's as 
large a wire the other browns on the post, I suspect it's hooked up 
wrong.  The male spade on the solenoid is for the smaller wire from the 
start post on the ignition switch.  On my '69 B it's a white & red wire. 
The Bentley wiring diagrams for the B show it can also be white/brown 
for '69-70.  The C could be different but maybe not.  Anyhoo, that was 
my thinking based on your saying it was a __large_ brown wire.
