So it starts and runs now. An added bonus is that the interior lights work. Previously there was a short and the fuse blew immediately when the batter was connected. Voltmeter is high and steady.

One thing I don't know is how the fuel pump is handled during cranking. i believe it runs while the starter is running. After that the engine needs to be sparking for the relay to close. The wiring diagram doesn't show how it's done. Might be an extra wire that isn't in the schematic.
It might have been an aftermarket alarm and the wire was there so it wouldn't turn over if the alarm was tripped. Somebody might not have known and added the relay back or removed the alarm and f'd up the wiring.
