The following applies to the 350, the 6.2 Diesel, and probably all other Chevrolet engines.
There is a heavy cable coming from the battery to the big stud on the front end of the starter solenoid. The nut takes either a 9/16 or 5/8 wrench. On my 1977 there is a lighter cable going from this same stud to the fuse board. On later vehicles you may find the fuse board fed directly from the battery through a fusible link.
On the front end of the solenoid nearest the driver there is a thin stud with a nut taking either an 11/32 or 5/16 deep socket. This takes a light cable coming from the ignition/starter switch, possibly via a firewall solenoid and (if an automatic transmission) a transmission switch which closes only when the transmission is in park or neutral.
There is also a thin stud on the front end of the solenoid furthest from the driver. No external wire attaches to this.
If there is a front support for the starter, be sure to attach it to the stud on the front of the starter.
With the flywheel pan removed check the pinion clearance with the pinion shoved back to engage the flywheel. I find a large paper clip is just the right thickness for this job. Adjust the clearance by adding or removing shims where the starter contacts the engine block. There are two big screws holding the starter to the engine block. To change shims you must remove the screw furthest from the driver and loosen the screw nearest the driver.
The Chevy starter does not have a ground wire, the starter grounds through the starter casing.
It would help to know the year, But I would say that it is the knock sensor wire and it should be pluged into the knock sensor that is screewed into the side of the engine block just in front of the starter.
The starter needs a large wire from the battery and a wire from the starter switch. These are connected to the solenoid that is attached to the starter.
Yes and it should be in your fuse block. Chances are that it is a relay fuse and you won't be able to tell if it is blown or not.

mark s is for start mark r is resitor
Your starter solenoid is the ropund part attached to the top of your starter it has the little wire to trigger the starter drive to engage the flexplate and a big battery wire to spin it hope this answers you question
im stuck and I need help
assuming the batt.is fully charged,it may be the solenoid not engaging the starter motor.you can remove the starter motor and solenoid and run jumper wires to it .if starter does not spin,it may be the solenoid not engaging the starter.keep hands and clothing away from starter when doing this test!also,you did not mention if the solenoid wire was fastened to starter when you replaced it.usually purple color on chevy.good luck
negative side of the coil
follow the red wire from the battery
starter on 67 camaro which wire goes were. There are two one purple one yellow.
Just follow the positive battery wire to the strarter solenoid post. The starter is attached to that solenoid at the back side of the engine Close to the tranmission.
old lights, blowen fuse, shorted wire?
It's located on the end if the main power wire coming off the alternator. This wire connects to the starter. The fusible link is located on the starter end of the wire.
I need to know how to change a starter on a 93 Chevy z71 Unhook battery cables from battery, take the ground wire off starter, take power wire off starter, take the 2 bolts out of starter and should come right out

remove neg.cable.then positive cable cable from starter,remove male to female wire ,then remove 2 bolts holding starter to engine.
follow the wire from the positive side of the battery it will lead you to it
It will be a tan wire with a black stripe that breaks out of the wireing harness on the fire wall but close to the dist.
Someone knocked a wire loose.
the purple wire is the gauge and white and black are ground!
