EOD posted a good view of the starter wiring. The '79 motor used an HEI dizzy so no I wire is needed from the starter to the coil.
A solid copper wire will be needed from the ignition switch to the dizzy. Remove the existing '66 wire. This '66 wire was a resistor wire that was used with the old point type dizzy.
