Easy for me, maybe, but I know what I'm looking for. If I were looking for the first time it might be a different story. Here's a picture of my '96 E300D, taken during a starter motor operation. The ground strap or wire is pretty obvious. I don't know how different your '79 is, I've never seen one underneath.
