BE helpful to know what starter you have.

If you only have the big battery cable post, then it will be necessary
to use a Ford type relay between the starter and the battery.

Cable from battery to solenoid>>>>.solenoid to starter

Purple wire from your harness to the S term on the solenoid.

Most mini starters I have seen have the "S" post already there, but a lot of them do not have the "R" post.

Those without the "R" or ignition post would need a relay to provide 12v to that post while starting-----if your car needs it (points distributor or an ignition switch that is not bussed between "RUN" and "START"

Seems that the mini-starter you have has no solenoid. Get one with the proper solenoid that the S (start) terminal and the I (ignition) terminal.
See attached.
