The Resistor wire usually starts at the Bulkhead connector on the Firewall, engine compartment side.
There's also a wire that runs from the Starter up to the old Points Distributor for full 12V supply when cranking. It's not needed when using an HEI.

Engine side only, should be able to trace it back to the connector from the Distributor. May find a wiring diagram, 'search engine' is the best way it'll bring up much more Info.
Most models should be about the same wire colors.

yes i used the search engine but everybody states the samething used the fusebox but that is not the way i want to do it. Thats the reason i bought the HEi harness bulkhead connector i want it to look stock with out a pink wire sticking out of the fusebox so far the first method has been expline but not the other on these cars

I did my 71 C10 the lazy way. Just unplugged the old and ran a new wire thru the firewall where the Washer hose went thru. Plugged it into the Fusebox on a unused/fused spade Terminal.

What does your HEI Bulkhead connector kit look like?
Terminal & wire that goes into the Bulk Conn.?

That's pretty much it. The Resistor wire starts there or close to it. Just swap the wire.

Nice Kit I thought it was only one wire you had but, yours is plug & play.
Yes the Purple= S terminal & Pink= R terminal on the Starter.
