Both my diagrams for 1970 show a single brown from the solenoid to the fuse
block, and a tee off there to the starter relay. There is another brown off
the solenoid that goes to the four-way sealed branch behind the dash that
feeds things like lights, ignition and hazard flashers. If you have
ignition but no cranking you need to double-check the first brown I
mentuioned - from the solenoid to the fuse block.
BTW. I presume you also have no courtesy lights, horn or headlamp flashers
as these are all powered off the purple which comes off the bottom fuse.
