Default Ignition relay

Hi all,

been wiring the engine today so hopefully all correct (cheers for the diagrams Ash).
After a few initial problems I managed to turn the engine - positive and neg connected and a live feed from the battery (in place of the ignition switch).

Problem being when i connect the ignition feed up and turn the ignition nothing happens. Looking at the relay - seems i've been a bit heavy handed when reducing the loom (removing excess) and I think the relay is kaput!

Will bypassing the relay and putting in a starter button (but still retaining the ignition switch for IVA) have any long term effects??
