sbc starter selonoid "r" wire Confusion

I have a 67 Nova and I have a question on a starter change out.

My old starter I just took out has the sylenoid with 3 wires going to:

1. the large positive for the battery cable
2. 2 other wires going to each of these on the sylenoid which are labeled "r" and "s". R=blue wire and S= Red wire.

My New Tilton style starter I only have:

1. the large Positive for the battery cable
2. only 1 connector which i believe is for my S=Red wire. Can someone help me out on where my other wire placement with this new tilton style starter. I'm uncertain as to where i need to go with my blue wire that used to bo to the "r" prong of the solenoid.

I have yet to track these wires down, but will tomorrow I believe one is to the ignition and the other may come from a Resistor. This has me stumped.

If it means anything, I am running a dual point distributor, and willing to change to electronic if needed.
