K100 ideas?

To get things started, I am attempting to get an 85 K100 running for a guy at work that let the bike sit for several years. When I got the bike I put in a battery and charged it, turned the key on and verified all of the lights worked, including instrument panel lights. Then I turned the engine over with the starter, it turned over fine. I found the fuel pump locked up and all of the rubber parts in the engine turned to goo. I cleaned that all up and put in new hoses & filter and got the pump working. I drained the fuel rail and hooked it all up. I then tried to start the bike. It turned over fine but no start. I have kept the battery charger on it as I made several attempts to start it and discovered that the pump had quit again, no biggie I'll replace it. Now I go out to see if I can jar the pump into working and the engine won't turn over, just a clicking from the solenoid/relay. AND, the headlight is not working nor are the turn signals. When I hit a turn signal the dash lights both indicators and the on side signal..as long as I hold it. Once I let go all turn indicators and signals go out. What does work is the park lamp, tail lamp and all idiot lights. I've checked each fuse and they are good....ANY Ideas as to what happened?
