Subject: <VV> Missing Coil Wire

A few weeks ago I posted about an issue on a 1961 Greenbrier.  There was
only one wire going to the positive side of the coil and it was the fabric
covered resistance wire.  I could not understand how this would provide 12 V
during starting.  I got a number of answers to my question.  The most
helpful was the fact that it appears that on new wiring harnesses from
Clark's there is a missing yellow wire from the starter relay to the coil.
If my memory serves me correctly it was supposed to be yellow wire.  I think
I also received instructions as to which terminal on a solenoid the hook up
to but an e-mail crash has wiped out all the information.  Can somebody
help?  Thanks.
