Default 1995 4.3 Starter/solenoid wire question.

I have a 1995 Mariah Talari with a 4.3 liter LX. On the Solenoid I have a purple/yellow wire that is not connected to anything. I have checked the repair manual and it shows it going to the solenoid and to the fuel pump.But by pictures, you can't tell were on solenoid it is hooked to.
I have 3 large red ones (battery, trim motor, safety shutoff to distributor) and 1 orange (alternator) all hooked together. 1 small yellow/red wire that is supposed to go to the slave solenoid by itself. 1 large black wire that goes to the starter. I only have the 3 bolts on the solenoid.I bought the boat used, so have no idea if this start/solenoid has been replaced with the wrong one or if the wire was for sure ever hooked up to anything. I do have a electic fuel pump.
Does anybody also have this wire and could tell me were it is hooked up too. Maybe on solenoid with the yellow/red or maybe on a seperate bolt that I don't have.

    When I enlarge the picture of the starter solenoid, it looks like the purple/yellow wire and the yellow/red wire are hooked together on the left terminal on the solenoid when looking at the terminals.

    I was looking at the printed wiring diagram available in the service info. However, I just looked at the wiring on my 1994 4.3LX and found that:
    the purple/yellow wire is on the lower left terminal
    the two red + the one orange wires are on the large terminal
    the yellow/red wire is on the upper right terminal.

    A total of 3 posts plus the jumper lead to the starter itself.

    Here are the best pictures I could get of the starter solenoid. I hope this helps.
