Need more info about whats going on with it now. Igniton and starter wiring easily could be separate from alternator.

Switched power from battery to ign is fine but you cant just go from battery to starter without a nuetral safety switch wired in between the momentary button. It can be done but it wont pass tech at the track and its not a safe thing to do. Wiring these two things should have no effect on your charging system your key switdh will still excite the alt and as long as you have a wire fron the alt to the battery it will still charge.Just check everthing with a voltmeter when you done.
