Simple 62 Impala SS wiring question

I have a 1962 Impala SS. When I got it the wiring under the dash and hood were a mess. There were many wires that went to nothing so one day I went on a rampage and started taking loose wiring out. This is where my problems started. Now the car has no power (12V) going into the fuse panel, ignition, interior lights etc.

Under the windshield washer bottle on the firewall, there are two connectors that go into the back of the fuse panel. I specifically remember taking two wires out of the left connector (when facing the firewall). Here is what I have left.

The connector has 8 pins connections. Two wide and 4 down

Yellow (wiper motor) and a Blank to the right

Blank connection with a Blank to the right

Brown (blower motor) with a Purple wire to the right (starter silenoid)

Blank connection with a Red wire to the right (distributor)

One of these blank connectors has to be go to a 12V source. Can you tell me which one it is and where it goes to?

Take a continuity tester and go from your positive battery post or starter positive. Then to the wires in question . Then see which one is common to it . Do this with the battery removed . That will be the hot wire .
