The B-terminal on the starter gets the thick cable directly from the battery positive terminal. The S-terminal gets the wire from the CRANK relay. The starter is grounded through its housing which means there should be a thick cable that grounds the engine block to the battery negative terminal.

purple wire or red wire with small tiny ring end on it goes to S solenoid terminal

all the other wires and positive cable with large ring end all go to larger stud on solenoiod

smaller wires to it are fusable links and feed various circuits and items in the truck

ground wires and cable go to a bellhousing bolt stud
