You might have a faulty ignition switch and you can get one for around 50 bucks if you '''look here.'''

Hi, It sounds to me like the wire to the pre-engager solenoid is disconnected.

You should have one thick lead that connects from the battery to the large stud terminal on the solenoid and a smaller “command wire” that connect the solenoid’s windings to the 12 volt supply when the key is turned to start position.

Hope this give you a start!
