3 wires off the starter...one to the battery, the purple ignition lead, and a third red wire that isnt attatched to anything right now. whats loose red wire supposed to go to? electric choke? this is a 70
One end of this wire should go to the "R" on the starter solinoid and the other end to the "+" side of the ignition coil. It is there to make sure the coil gets a full 12 volts when cranking. If you have an HEI distributor, you don't need this wire. On my 70 I thought this wire was originally yellow, not red. Good luck
