Only thing I might have wrong is the small red to a "12 volt switched" source. If that can be clearly defined to what I should run it to might help. Right now it's to the back of my ignition switch,MIT gets 12 volts when key is turned on. Right?

I'm getting closer. I can use a screwdriver to jump from the ignition post to the starter signal post on the back of the ignition switch. But turning the key from ON to START, I don't get anything. Also, touching the ACC post wires to the SIGNAL post results in the engine cranking over, no start. There's a small piece of this puzzle that I'm obviously missing.

That is correct. I would look for problems in the crank wire or the switch itself.

I've done both. Bought a new ignition switch, and I've used a jumper wire. Jumping from starter solenoid, to the ignition switch. And still nothing.

6" back from ignition post on the signal wire, there is a yellow male connector that has been split into the line, if I plug a female connector into this, would it complete the circuit? Resulting in the key moving to the START position, sending the complete signal down to the solenoid?

Put a meter or test light on it to see if you get voltage in the start position.

I don't. Is this the pain in my ass that is so easy to fix? Maybe?

You need to make sure that you are getting voltage to the starter in the start position. That may be your only problem.

I know that I'm not getting that. But I have no idea how to fix that. Any pointers? All the wires look good. Only wires that should be of concern are the red starter >>battery cable. and the purple starter >>>>>ignition switch. Right? I'm pretty sure I have the ignition switch set up right. Only thing I could think of is there suppose to be a hot wire on the starter/signal post?

1972. The ignition switch is from a earlier model jeep. Don't know why. But I don't think it should make a diff, right?
