Sounds like the wire in question is the one that runs from the "R" terminal to the coil. This wire provides +12v to the coil in during crank only. The other wire on the "+" terminal of the coil is your resistive wire from your igntion switch. This drops the voltage to the coil after the engine starts. This keeps the points from burning out.
The wiring diagram I have shows this to be a 12gauge wire. You should be able to run this yourself. You are right that the other wire (12 gauge purple) goes to your ignition switch- 12V in start position.
<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>Steve, thanks for the info. will run the 20 guage wire and try to get her started.
