Hello and welcome to Just, Super mechanic here. About your vehicle.

You will want to see if there is power, (12v) at the yellow wire of the clutch start switch when the key is turned. Also if there is power to the purple wire when the clutch is depressed and the key is turned. That could be just a bad clutch start switch. Of course, make sure that the rod is attached to the pedal also.

Good job!!
That could just be the ignition switch. About half way down the steering column, but check the wires at it, (I have had a lot of them that the connections were bad). You also can check the yellow wire there too, to be sure. Most times though, it will even look burnt. (the switch) #80 in the diagram, thanks
