Were does this wire go?

I'm a dumass I disconnected a wire that I can't for the life of me remember were it connects to. I just got done replacing the starter, battery, starter relay switch and battery cables. After I got everything back in the truck I left the wiring alone for about two weeks cause I left town to go visit my family. When I got back I went to go put the wires back in got everything back together and then realized I had left a wire out not connected to anything and couldn't figure out what it was connected to. So I need some help I'm posting a picture of it I know its probably the most simplest thing but I'm just a dumass who can't get it. So would appreciate the help thanks. Its at this link. http://www.flickr.com/photos/2961270...61462/sizes/l/

I don't have a 90 manual but this is from 89:

Starter relay:

Front lug: positive battery cable and power distribution box cable
Rear lug: starter cable

the wire coming from the distribution block goes to the positive side on the solenoid. From the looks of your picture you took you have the wires switched around because my positive side is on the left so for you it goes on the right side. Hope it helps.
