ignition hell, no key cylinder..need ignition wiring help

Doing a 4.0L swap and trying to identify wiring from ignition switch on top of column. I located what I believe to be the ignition switch, on top of the column behind the speed/tach. Into this switch go two connectors; one black (4 wire) and one blue (3 wire).

black connector =

RED ( heavy gauge ) constant power 12V
white/black stripe (x2) wires look identical
black/orange stripe

Blue connector=
black/white stripe

the problem is the key-cylinder is missing from the column, PO had pulled it to replace it and never finished. I thought I could use the pin selector to engage on-ignition-start. No luck, pin behind cylinder for key just spins

I do have an ignition/start panel from 12Vguy. I want to bypass the ignition/key all together.

The motor is freshly rebuilt, hasn't even been started.
I am trying to wire things so I can first ensure I have fuel to the rail.

I want fuel to rail, and haven't got the pump to turn on. I just don't know where to tie in the live feed I have so that my accesories come on.

then prime oil pump manually
ensure spark,
try for initial start up
