The solenoid will have 2 large posts on it, and one of them should be copper colored.
The positive battery cable will go to the copper colored post, and the starter cable to the other large post. It will be a large red wire.
There will be either 1 or 2 small tabs.
If only 1 tab, the wire from the ignition switch will go to this tab. It will be a purple wire.
If 2 tabs, the wire from the ignition switch will go to 1 tab, and a ground wire will go to the other tab. The wire from the switch will be purple, and the ground wire will be black.
There should also be another smaller wire, either red or orange, with an eyelet on it. This wire will also go to the large battery connection post.
