Does your relay look just like this picture? Do you have wires going to all 4 terminals, in particular the "G" terminal?
Try removing the wire on "G" and then put a seperate wire to "G" terminal and run it to a ground on the fender and see if it starts.

Yes, that is the starter relay. That is the only relay that is in the starter circuit. It should look like the picture I put up in the previous post...it is controlled by the ignition switch and gets it's ground through the "G" terminal.
Please answer these questions if you want help.
Are there wires connected to each terminal?
Have you tried the procedure I mentioned in the previous post about the "G" terminal?

So, there are TWO relays you can jump using a screwdriver, and either one will start the car, but it will not start using the key? Here is a Dart wiring diagram, all 1973 and 1974 A-body Dodges and Plymouths with 318's, 340's and 360's use the same wiring harness.

4 speed cars don't have a neutral safety switch. There's not a lot mounted on the fender of my 340 Duster, or the 360 Dusters I've seen. ECU, voltage regulator and the relay Chump showed you. Can you take a pic of this second relay? Okay here's the question, with the key in the run position can you start it using a screwdriver on the relay in Chumps pic?
