To find these wires it's easiest if you have a multimeter. First, pull apart the ignition loom connector, connect the -ve multimeter lead to an earthed chassis point, set the multimeter to 20v dc and find which wire is live (thick one) on the loom going to the engine bay.
Then switch the multimeter to the smallest ohm setting, connect one lead to the corresponding 'live' wire but on the ignition switch side of the connector. Turn the key to 'run' and find which connector shows 0 ohms. Make sure it's the right one by turning the key to 'acc', it should go to an open circuit.
Use the same technique to find the starter circuit - should be 0 ohms when the key is turned to start but open when not.
