Ford Solonoid on a Chevy ???'s

I have a new ford starter solonoid. I want to hook it up to my new chevy engine. I have put the hot battery wire on one side and on the other I ran the hot wire to the starter. The purple wire from the wiring harness that gets hot in the start position from the ignition key switch goes where?? There are two posts on the solonoid with a S and an I on them. I put the purple wire on the S terminal and hit the key and NOTHING! There are 2 eyelets that go on the hot battery side with the battery cable and the purple wire and that's all the wires that are in the harness. Can anyone give me some input on the hook up, I am sure it something stupid that I am over looking.

Does the side on which the bat. wire and the starter wire goes make a differance?

If anyone has a wiring diagram on this I would appreciate a copy, my new solonoid didn't come with instructions. Kinda makes me feel DUH HUH!!!

When you use the ford solenoid, you have to run a jumper wire to the lower starter post from the orig start post on the starter, this pulls in the starter drive whenever power is supplied from the ford solenoid.
