One goes across the small terminals, the other goes across the large terminals. I don't remember which goes where, but I do know the direction of the diode is important. The resisitor has no polarity.

you can tell with the resistor it has ring terminals on the ends for the larger studs, the diodes have no terminals you just bend the ends around the smaller studs and your diode will have a silver band around it towards one end that end must go towards positive side of solenoid............................

Look at the diagram in stickies. Top one it shows you them both. Diode on small terminals, the band on the diode has to be on the + side of the terminal. Juice coming in side. The resister on large.
