HEI install question (wiring)

I know this has been somewhat covered, but it's a bit confusing to me.

Doing the swap to HEI distributor slowly. I was wondering if I could do the wiring like I have in the diagram. Remove the 2 wires from the old coil then run new 12 gauge wire from the run terminal of the starter solenoid (where the yellow wire was connected) to the Bat+ terminal on the HEI. It seems to me that since the battery is connected directly to the solenoid with large cable that this would be a good source of 12 volt supply or would I be possibly overloading the wiring inside the solenoid itself. Any thoughts?
