Do I understand this connects the switch directly to the starter solenoid? Then this is the way someone cancelled the seat belt interlock. I bet the bad connection was near the coil in the right corner of the firewall.
It would be a good idea to reinstall a start relay. With a Spica pump, the switch does not only see a load from the starter solenoid but also from the cold start solenoid - they are connected together. Eventually it kills the ignition switch start contact, juts as the headlamps kill the main contact in the switch.
No rush, someday.
