2 final Qs on this darn winch

This thing has a sticker on the motor housing showing direction to wind the wire BUT its pointing opposite than the line is wound! [img]images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img]. The line is on the spool facing forward to the fairlead under the drum and the stickers arrow points towards the front on the top side of the motor [img]images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]

I would guess that someone stuck the sticker on backwards cuz the line coming off the drum lines up perfectly with the fairlead from underneath the drum?

Also, the 6 guage wires coming from the solenoids have no markings as to which terminal on the winch motor to attach to, do i just attach and see if the motor is turning the correct direction and reverse the wires if its backwards?

Thanks, Craig....
