wiring?????

I have a 58 chevy truck with a small block,kwik wire 22 circuit wiring harness,pertronix dist., chevy mini starter, when I turn key on the starter runs. I have everything (I think) wired like it supposed to be from all the directions in booklet from kwik wire. There is something wrong but can't figure it out. Can someone help?

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 starter 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.

If the car had a starter with wires on both the I and S terminals you cant simply put them both on the same terminal, (s terminal) if you do the starter will run as soon as you turn the key on.

To answer your question in post 3......... IS the dizzy an HEI or points?...... if HEI disconnect the wire from the coil to the "I" terminal and discard. If the dizzy is a points type..... go get a new starter with the "S" and "I" terminals and connect the wire from the coil to the "I" terminal and the purple wire from the switch to the "S" terminal. It might work with the points type dizzy by leaving the wire off but you won't get the full 12volts when cranking etc..... which might lead to hard starting etc...
