i checked my 78 CIS lambda system and pulled the relay that says "start lock"...it won't allow it to start/turnover.
The other reads "ignition lock"... when I remove that one I have no fuel pump, no buzzer, and still no starter :-)
it's is possible that someone jumped the wire across the fuse box to eliminate the relay. If that "connection" it's no longer intact it may be the culprit.
When I had this problem with my car (same issue you describe) it ended up being the ground was very loose at the frame where the negative cable (from the battery) connects to the car.
I agree with jimmy that the fuse block is a poor design however you can get it to work..just not as reliable as the later style.
