Default 1976 F100 Wiring Issues (Ignition)

Ok so..truck was having ignition problems (some of the wires backing out of the connector that plugs into the key switch and what not, ended up just pulling them all out and hot wiring it when I needed to start it) and that was working great for a while, but now one of the wires has shorted or something and melted most of the insulation so it's shorting on everything when I try to hook it all up now. There's various wires randomly hooked together (no splices or anything, just wires twisted in a bundle) and what I'm really wanting to do is get this all straightened out because I previously had ignition problems and they were a PITA to track down random loose connections etc.

SPARKNOTES - Does anyone have a wiring diagram for a 1976 F100's ignition switch? Or can anyone explain where each of the few wires goes etc.

I'd like to just bypass the clutch disengaged safety switch thing.

Thanks guys..just looking to get this straightened out..
