Foxbody won't start please help

I have a 88 gt. I pulled engine and Trans to do my build put it back in. I did a mass air conversion with a A9L computer. Everything is hooked up but it will not start. I can turn key to on position fuel pump turns on. When I go to turn it over it does nothing not a sound at all. If I leave key on and jump the silonide it fires right up and runs. Can anyone help me with this.

Did you use a donor car for the mass air conversion or aftermarket kit?

Are you sure you plugged all of the wiring harnesses in,on the transmission?? If the starter will turn over by jumping the solenoid posts,the issue is usually a bad ignition switch or clutch safety(manual)neutral sense(auto) switch.The clutch safety switch is at the clutch pedal & the neutral sense switch is at the transmission.
If youve got a 5 speed,disconnect the harness from the clutch safety switch & insert a 5 amp fuse into the harness terminals.Attempt a startup.If it starts,the clutch safety switch is bad.

It is getting no power to the small wire at top of solenoid and I will try that

I changed out the neutral clutch safety switch and it still does nothing. If I put a 5 amp fuse in the black connector it will start. I've check all wires on transmission everything is hooked up tight. I'm lost don't know what to try next.
