Default starter soleniod wiring?

Ok just making sure before I fry something. On the starter solenoid on a 1984 BII 2.8 I just connect the positive cable to the solenoid and then on the other side run it down to the starter? Next question wich 2 small wires connect to the solenoid and which post do they go on?

Only one small wire goes to the solenoid. It gets connected to the terminal marked with a"S". It is the wire from the ignition switch to actuate the solenoid. The charging system wires hook up to the battery side of the solenoid. I can get a pic if you need it.

Ok I got the starter hooked up and solenoid, thanks. I have some more questions. I can only find one heater hose connection on the upper part of the intake near the front of the motor, where is the other heater hose connected at? There is a ground or something (bolted to the carb mount) attached to a vacume thingy with some kind of one way valve and hose conection. What vacume hose goes to this? Lastly Can someone post pictures of the alernator wires? I will need to make my own to the battery cable and dont know which ones go to the alternator from the harness or were they go on the alternator?

Sorry for all the questions but Im just trying to finish up the project asap.

Need help.

I figured out everything except the ingition coil and alternator.

1st The red wire that goes in the ingition coil wide plug then comes out as a spaid single plug, where does this go? I cant find any place on my harness for this to plug in? Does it just go to the battery??????

2nd I have three wires that go to the alternator where do they go? ones black, ones orange, the other is red/orange with a stripe and is bigger. Im assuming the black goes on the black pin, do the other 2 go on the orange pin and then I need to run a cable to the battery to the red "BAT" pin??????

I dont have battery cables yet so I dont have a battery cable yet for the alt and can make one if I need to.

HELP!

There is a link to an on-line tech manual(Haynes/Chilton) in this thread. It has wiring diagrams you can use to figure out where the wires go. If you still need some help, just let me know.
