If you didn't already get it, yes that is the ground for the starter. The end you have open, mounts on the frame for the blower.

Be sure to bolt it back up to blower bracket. Parts of the car not meant to carry current are doing so. This can translate into corrosion in weird places, like inside the water jacket, and burning out whatever happens to be carrying the current during high loads such as starting.
