yes, there's a "fuseable" link connected to the negative ground terminal to the inside of the fender (ground)...you have to replace this one~ hmmm. it keeps saying that this is a plug-in goodie...mine is a '93 toyota pickup and had to replace this link...here's what THEY recommend~https://www.google.com/#q=1994+toyota+pickup+fusible+link &tbm=shop

okay....cannot find this online, but the guy at NAPA sold me a replacement for the "fuseable link"...the kit had extra connectors in it~

I replaced the 80amp fuse now it will turn over but not start I am thinking it took out something else maybe in the spark system

yes...as I have stated and shown there's a red rectangular box "fuseable link" and a pigtail off the battery...goin' to the inside of the frame ('course yours is all burned away, but you can see evidence of this "fuse link" there if you look there~

okay maybe it's not red, but a fuse-like thing~....and not the MEGA fuse that you replaced~

unhook the neg bat cable for 12 to 15 minutes reconnect and try! just a dumb thought!
