Hello Jacqueline Iannuzzi,

The actual solenoid on that car is on the side of the fender ...
Large lugs are for the BATTERY & STARTER Cables.

The small terminals If one comes directly from the "S" terminal of your IGNITION SWITCH...

In a simpler time the "other" terminal was the "B" power to the ignition switch
(you should NOT have the 2 wire solenoid (I don't think)).

Hope this helps,1955,thunderbird,4.8l+292cid+v8,1435048,electrical,starter+solenoid,4188?a=Ad+Code+msn-Ford

Ford y block ECG3ECG3

Ford was always the most conservative of the major automakers, holding onto older designs far longer than GM or Chrysler. But market forces pushed Ford to develop new designs in the 1950s. The company had designed the Y-block for a 1953 introduction, but a shortage of nickel due to Korean war needs prevented the company from manufacturing the engine in sufficient quantities.
Ford introduced the first of the Y-block engines in 1954 on Ford cars and trucks. The engine displaced 239 cubic inches and made 139 horsepower and 193 pound-feet of torque. This represented a 25% improvement over the standard flathead from the previous year. Ford customers were enthusiastic about the new engine. Mercury customers received an uprated 256 cubic inch Y-block rated at 161 horsepower and 238 pound-feet of torque.
For 1955, Ford increased the displacement and made engines at both 272 and 292 cubic inches. The 272 made 162 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. All basic Ford products received this engine. The 292 engine gave Thunderbird and Mercury drivers 193 horsepower and 280 pound-feet. With this engine, the 1955 Thunderbird rocketed from zero to sixty in just 9.4 seconds.

1955 olds 88 hei ignition wiring to key and ignition system

Original system has a resistor wire between coil + and ignition key, to reduce voltage and thus increase amps to give fatter spark and increase fuel mileage. For HEI system, this resistor wire must not be used, so run new primary wire straight from switch "run" to coil +. There should already be a wire from the starter solenoid to the coil + to supply full 12 volts when cranking to give higher voltage spark to plugs to help jump the gap better for use while starting. The MSD web site has much more info.
