    All other wires get connected to the battery side stud not the starter stud.

On the fender mounted solenoid there are 2 small studs marked S and I. On my 83 5.0L V8 the I is not used. The S is connected to the ignition switch, it's the small wire with the 90 Deg. terminal on it. Then it has 2 big studs on the solenoid. One to the left of the small S terminal you connect the Battery Positive cable. On the other big one goes the cable that goes down to the starter. Sound like you got both cables on battery side stud giving power to the starter without turning the key on. Follow the cable that goes down to the starter and then move it over to the other stud. That should fix your problem.

check for air and vacuum leaks. check for float level. check and adjust idle mixture correctly. Check timing is correct. check idle to 650-- 700rpm. Check point gap and coil . check condenser as if it is bad the engine will start but there will not be a hot enough spark from the coil at anything above idle.
