It's brass with a single threaded terminal and slip-on rubber connector like the small terminal on the starter relay, but this site will show it.

IIRC it's on the back left of the engine under the intake/exhaust manifolds. Like Steve said it's a brass plug with a stud sticking out of it and a wire with rubber boot on the stud.
