NEED TO KNOW THE WIRING FOR THE SOL

1969 Oldsmobile Cutlass

Electrical problem
1969 Oldsmobile Cutlass V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic

i have a electrical issue with my 69 olds, not sure where the wires go from the solenoid, on the solenoid there is a " R" and a " S" .I think the S goes to the Starter Relay, and the R goes to the COIL?

which ever one goes to the coil. Is it the POSITIVE side of the coil also?

i have a grouind wire from my batter to the frame and its MELTING?


i did replace the horn relay and I am waiting for the starter relay (behind the brake booster).

i also replace the voltage regulater.(Could this be damaged due to the problems I llisted also?


thanks

Welcome, the oldest I could find was 1970.

S terminal should be the purple wire. I can't guarantee these old wiring diagrams? I found some old delco remy ignition wiring circuits, for two wire and three wire ignition switches, it shows different from the diagram?
