The wires you have are white for common, 1 black for slide in, 1 black for slide out, and green for ground. Verify the direction that each of the black wires moves the slide before wiring. You will need a 3 position switch also.

In 12 volt DC automotive electrical systems black is always the ground wire or negative. Make sure you disconnect the battery before doing any electrical work (unhook the negative cable first). Don't splice into any wires under the dash, use a piggyback fuse connector on one of the accessory fuses eg; cigarette lighter.

I have the same model year as yours, but that does not really matter. If you go to the back of your Haynes manual, the wiring color codes are spelled out for you specific to your car, It is possible that a new or rebuilt starter can be stuck (clearances on starter gear/and shaft) or that you somehow bolted it in slightly askew and it is stuck or cannot move properly. Spot check the ring gear teeth by looking through the starter hole to see if they are o.k. and that the gear on the starter seems correct. Also, look around and check and make sure the ground strap is good (motor to body) or any ground for that matter
Sometimes, if a motor or starter motor is in a locked rotor condition this will cause a heat rise. It might be a good idea to remove it and energize it with jumper cables from the battery-- (a bench test) to verify actuation. (spin) Then wipe the grease of the leads (so you can read your color code) and carefully connect them to the terminals as the wiring diagram tells you in the Haynes manual.

You'll need a test light, have someone turn on the windshield washer pump from inside the car , while you check washer pump harness with test light to check which of the two wires has voltage, that one will go on (+).the other on (-).

The black wire goes to the positive terminal and blue goes to the negative terminal.
Is your car running?
There is a procedure in the factory service manual: http://www.xenons130.com/reference.html
Hope this helps!
