67 starter wiring question

I am about to wire my starter on a project that I have been working on for 5 months. This is a start from scratch car. I have 3 wires that bundled together running to the starter area. I get the puprle goes to the on post, the other two are red and yellow. Any ideas? These are seperate from the larger wire coming from the battery. I got that one already. At least one of the 3 wires must be for something else. ??? Ted

Re: 67 starter wiring question

Yellow wire is coming from the ballast resistor. If you are running an after market ignition, ie MSD you dont need this wire.
If you are running a stock ignition, coil and distributor then the ballast resistor is a porcelin fixture with a wire in it. It should go pink 12V ignition wire to ballast resistor, yellow wire from the BR to the solenoid (R). A wire should also come from the downstream side of the BR and go to the + coil.
The red wire is a 12V battery wire. Goes to the battery post on the solenoid.

Purple goes to the small post closest to the engine block.

Yellow goes to the outer post.

Big Red from the battery goes to the big center post.

There are no other wires.

Re: 67 starter wiring question

Word of warning about the yellow wire on a 67. Even though you may have an HEI that runs off a full 12V, some 67 ingition switches did not keep the IGN feed hot while cranking. Check it out and if 12V disappears while cranking you may still need the yellow wire between the iginition power feed and the starter 'R' terminal. If your ignitions switch is an aftermarket unit, you probably won't have a problem since I think all the repos work the way 68+ switches did. Just be sure to check IGN in the crank position with a volt meter.

Re: 67 starter wiring question

Would the red wire be the one for the heater blower motor?

The heater blower on a 68 is orange. I believe it is the same on a 67.
