The purple wire goes on the inside small terminal. Any small pink wires go on the outside terminal, and any large terminal wires go on the large lug on the solinoid. Except, there is a black wire that is a ground and goes under the starter mounting bolt. This is the ground for the heater fan and wipers. Many times people mistakenly hook this to the solinoid and cause the drain that you refer to.
