I would also look closely at the black 6 gauge wire going from the solenoid to the starter. It appears as if it may be rubbing on the lift linkage. That could have worn the insulation off the cable and create a short when trying to start.

I would look closely at all the wires until you find the one that has damage to the outer insulation. Easily fixed with electrical tape or new cable. Then make sure you route it or cable tie it away from where the rubbing occurred.

The coil should have marking as positive and negative. Positive will be the feed from the ignition switch (12v), the negative should have the wire going to the points along with the condensor wire. To my knowledge these are the only 3 wires connected directly to the coil.
