A Chevy starter requires a lot of amperage, which in turn requires a large 4-gauge wire from the battery to the starter solenoid. The solenoid acts like a switch, opening and closing the high amperage circuit to the starter. The ignition key supplies the power to actuate a relay, which in turn actuates the solenoid. Disconnect the battery terminals, using a wrench. Mount the starter relay.
Hooking up a push button start to a Chevy engine implies an on and off ignition switch has already been installed or the car has a defective ignition switch on the steering column. The push button start switch activates the starter, not the ignition. This device gm starter hookup used in race cars primarily, with a minimal wiring harness. The ignition switch should be turned on first, before pressing the starter button, to activate the starter. Locate a convenient position for the starter button switch.

I removed starter then forgot what wire went where. There are two large studs and more big eyelet wires with the large fat wire that goes to battery. Do you. There is only one big stud for incoming cable and it is on top. The other one is attached internal connecting the solenoid to the motor. The purple one goes on the "S" terminal.
