There should be 3 wires that go to the starter if I'm correct. Ground, Constant Positive and a Ignition on off wire. Ground to any decent ground-frame-motor. Constant positive straight to battery...Then your ignition on off wire goes to the relay under your hood on the passenger side firewall If I remember correctly....I could be wrong, "may want some one else to chime in."
