Check the neutral start switch on clutch pedal support.

Can the neutral start switch be bypassed/jumped? Did that and still nothing?

It can't be bypassed.

Yoyu would need a test light or DVOM to test if power supply is getting to the starter vai the ignition switch and its circuit.

That means the starter is good and problem is with the electrical side and could be those as I have suggested.

Thank you car starts. Switch was good. The starter fuse was blown.
