High Torque mini starter

I'm wiring my 59 chevy apache with a painless kit. I have a Chevrolet high torque mini starter. I attached the battery positive to the top post of the solenoid along with a 8 guage hot wire to the maxi fuse. I then attached the purple or start wire to the spade terminal on the solenoid. There is a bottom post with nothing attached. What is this for?

Thanks for your help.

Doc here,

Well, not knowing what starter you have ..

MY BEST GUESS would be that it is an "R" terminal for the secondary ignition for a points type ignition..not used for HEI or CDS..

Assuming it is a smaller terminal AND the starter motor IS hooked up to the solenoid.

Can you snap a photo and post it here? that would help.

Doc

The bottom post would be the starter motor connection, which has a connection going directly to the motor.

The bottom post is the same size as the top post. The headers are in the way so I can't get in there to see or read. I guess it makes too much sense to look at it closely before I installed it. Where does the neutral safety switch from the tranny attach?

Thanks

The wire from the NSS will go to the small post. The large post closest to the electric motor has a conductor going direct to the motor. The large post farthest away from the motor will have your battery cable attached.
