Starter lock out?

No, I had a comparable issue several months ago and I replaced the ign. switch as a repair of that problem. The switch was cracked and I have had no issues since. I saw that diagram. 36-38 is jumpered and that circuit goes to the ign. switch. If the device that stops current to the starter, relay #8, is not present and that circuit is jumpered, where do I go next? Circuit b moves over to 538 and stops with a half circle  and the number 53. Does that mean the fuel pump really is somehow connected to this system? Seems to me, if I'm reading this right, the starter should turn over without b and 53 being involved.

Thanks for your help, Bob

would see that the anti theft relay interrupts the starter current.   
Could be a problem in that system. TROUBLE SHOOT!
