Advice on wiring a compressor hard start kit

Hey all,

I'm trying to install a 5-2-1 hard start kit on my Ducane AC12B36. The contact is kinda old (well the unit is 17 years old I think) and I'm not sure where to attach the black wire from the 5-2-1 to the contactor. I think it goes on the T2 post but not sure (see pic). Anyone know?

You need to trace the wires on T1 and T2. Whichever one NOT going to the capacitor is the one you want.
