start wiring diagram request - not starting

I was out picking up mulch today with my 1995 F350 with the 7.5 in it and the truck wouldn't start. I've had to wiggle the shift lever for a while now, need to tighten up the shift lever and replace the transmission position sensor. wiggling didn't help, after a while it started up without changing anything.

in case this happens again, can someone be so kind as to point me to the wiring diagram for the starter circuit?

the small terminal on the top - is that hot to start from the ignition? where is the park/neutral signal from the transmission wired in?

thanks!

I don't have the diagram you need, but as a temp fix, you can bypass the neutral safety switch (or transmission position sensor as you call it) by just putting a wire between the two terminals of the switch itself. But beware when you bypass or jumper out the switch, the truck will start in any gear. After you do this, you can look into replacing the switch, and/or replacing or rebuilding the shifter linkage/cable. If you fix the shifter and replace the neutral safety switch there is a 99% chance it will solve you problem.
