Default Odd no-start condition. 1986 Marathon.

hello all! I have a 1986 ezgo marathon that I am working on for a customer. I recently rebuilt the engine and converted it over to the HEI style ignition module and had no issues with it until recently. Now it will only fire when the Forward/Reverse switch is jiggled. It spins over great, has excellent compression, has a nice blue arc to the spark, and has fresh fuel. The issue has me stumped. The forward reverse switch doesn't seem to interact with the spark system at all! Anybody see this before?

Does the electrical system look like this:

If so then you may have to take apart the FNR and clean up the contacts inside it. Also, You may want to locate all grounds and clean them well.
