Wasn't there one year where they tried a seat-belt
starter interlock?  There's an underhood switch to
bypass it, for servicing.

I have not tried neutral yet.  I did some tracing of the circuits and I think 
the thing I undid was part of the start system.  At least that is what the 
diagram seems to indicate.  I will try anyway

 The 300d (76) has been sitting for a while.  I seem to have killed the
 connection
 from the key to the starter.  The glow circuit seems to work, the key
 turns and
 lights up the dash bulbs as normal, but when I turn the key to engage the
 starter, Nothing.
 
 I have been removing wires from the door and other non-essential(?) items.
 Thinks like AC and window, sun roof.  The window wiring went out the
 firewall
 to a box (passenger side) that had fuses and wiring block, but also an
 ancillary
 pig tail that went under the fuse to a relay? with four wires.  A heavy
 red, a
 heavy black and standard ground (brown) and another wire.  I was messing
 with this bunch just prior to the no start.
 
 What I need to do is divest as much as I can from the key and put it all
 on dash
 switches.  I need a kill switch, glow, ignition, start, and want the
 lights divorced
 from the spin dial.  Any tips?

The seat belt interlock was 1974 only.  Bad idea, as everyone either  
hot-wired it and still didn't wear seat belts, or people who did often  
found it necessary to hot-wire the system so they could start their  
cars when it failed.
