I don't have a picture but check this link. Follow the cable 11 in the diagram. Wherever is ending (under the car) there is the junction.Here comes together with the starter cable too. From this point goes straight to the battery.
Have you connected the batt since then? Or replace it? You might have the carb brushes gone all the way up and that is what's causing the short/sparks.

I would first check that.
