Okay so I'm back in after getting another fuse in the mail..

Nothing electrical was done at the end of last season other than unhooking the battery and it was stored inside our attached garage.

Here's the set up.

Battery:

and the two black lines I had on the negative (close up above)

The rest on the postive:

Then I attached the black wire to the top post on the fuse:

Then put the positive wire on the post, the fuse, then tightened it down:

Anything look wrong before I try to hook the battery up and give it another go?

Thanks!!!

Can't make out where all the wires are from your picture. see attached diagram but it isn't really that clear either.

Thanks Mike. That is helpful, but I have a few more wires than the 1 black to the negative and 1 red to the positive and I think that's where my problem lies. Either that or the first aftermarket fuse wasn't up to par.

More than likely its 1 wire I'm screwing up somewhere though. Thanks!

the red wire that looks pink coming off the positive post next to the large red battery cable is suppost to be connected to the nut on the 80amp fusible link.

Right now your providing RED power right up to the wire harness.

I can;t tell in the photo when the fusible link has wired to it.

Thanks!

I'm not sure which one you mean by the pink wire (the battery picture or the starter picture?_

Right now on the fuse post I have a black wire which is easier to see here:

I appreciate it, really don't want to blow another one!

Joe,
from what I can tell in the last picture that is black heatshrink on the end and it looks like further back the wire is orange, which according to the diagram I provided goes to the alternator. My diagram shows that it should be on the fuse as you have it but to be sure I would use an ohm meter to verify this and that it is not a direct short to ground.

Mike,

Thank you for taking the time to find that! My wire going into the back of the fuse is black...In the diagram it says orange. I'm not even sure if I have an orange wire though?

Joe,
I would use an ohm meter to verify the black wire is not ground. Measure from the end of the wire to the negative on the battery if you get zero ohms than it is ground and should not be connected to the starter else you short the fuse to ground and it will blow. You may want to also measure to see if it has the same function as the orange wire by measuring ohms between it and the field terminal on the alternator shown on the first diagram I posted. If you get zero ohms from one end to the other than it should be the same as the orange connection to the starter.
