Chevy color code.... should have a purple wire from the key switch to the "S" terminal on the starter, The other terminal on the older starters was for the old point/coil type dizzy.... the wire from the pos side of the dizzy went to the "I" terminal on the starter to provide full 12v to the coil while starting. After it starts the "I" went dead and the coil received 9ish volts from the run position on the key switch via a resistance wire... ballast resistor etc..... so you wouldn't burn up the coil.

Modern HEI dizzy run on 12v ....so no need for the resistor or the "I" terminal.
