"My BIL couldn't get the starter to turn bypassing the ignition system"
If the starter motor did not turn over with a jumper lead from battery direct to the starter, the problem will not be the transmission activated starter switch.
I'd be looking at the earth lead. Is it still attached at the back of the dash? If so go buy a new lead and run direct from the battery to a starter motor mounting bolt. Makesure all connections are clean and bright.

Nay bloody worries mate! Too bloody right it is. Earth is ground, ground is earth. Drink too many Fosters or castlemaines, you fall on either. Ground wires are brown, 'cause that is the color of earth... or so it was explained to me... pretty confusing, because Australian dirt is red... or it was last time I was there... I am getting confused.... btw, from the sound of what you are trying, the starter might be bad or jammed.
