Need help with starter solenoid *pics*

so here is my problem, I my jeep was not starting due to the starter solenoid no longer working, in addition to wires with some bad connections. so I got all of the wires fixed and the noid is back in place. well long story short one of the wires i need to connect to the noid was pulled out and now it wont run at all. the jeep runs fine, i have power to the dash but because some ******* tryed working on it before i owned it and has completely butchered the wiring to the starter, i'm having problems trying to figure out where this last wire goes too.


this is what the solenoid, it has 6 hot wires going to the pos end of the terminal and has two lower smaller terminals that has one wire going to each terminal. i can't figure out where this green wire with a white stripe goes.



the green wire is in my hand and it looks like it might have been butt connected to maybe another wire? or maybe it leads into another harness?


here is the older one. i'm talking about the wire that is on the smaller terminal at the bottom, not the larger one at the top that goes to the starter and battery. I can't figure out where the small terminal at the bottom right goes to, the other one is still connected to the original wire, now i just need to get this other one in so i can actually get the thing running




If you guys could help me i would really appreciate it. if you have any photos of your 4.2s and where those wire run too that would help out a lot. the jeeps and 87 with a 4.2, and honestly this is driving me crazy.

thanks a lot
