1988 5.0 wont start with key

I did A few upgrades on my car , and cleaned up some wiring under the dash. I I alspo moved the battery to the rear of the car. After all done I went to turn the key everything in the car came on but would not start no clicking or anything. It will start jumping out the stqarter solenoid, I changed the solenoid still nothing, changed the igition switch and still nothing. I Dont know where to look next. some help please.....

Check to see if your inertia switch in the trunk or hatch (behind plastic panel near DS tail light) is tripped or bad. Make sure you have power in and out of both wires or its bad.

make sure your neutral safety switch is still hooked up. since you messed with some wiring maybe you accidentally unhooked it.

i checked the nuetral safety switch , even tried bypassing it to see if that was the problem. My fuel pump turns on so i know the relay in the back of the car isnt tripped. I am clueless

Well I would say chase the red wire that goes from the top of the starter solenoid. make sure it isnt broken anywhere. Ive seen a ton of those that just get thrashed by age.

you did something to the clutch sensing switch.

you said you jumped it, did you verify power to the red trigger wire on the solenoid?
