Check the wires to the starter solenoid. Starter solenoid is where the posiitve battery cable is attached ,Unplug the small wire from the keyswitch for start. Then turn the key to start, if fuse blows, it is not the solenoid! If it does not blow, replace the starter solenoid.

Sorry WFI down all evening. Switch wire onthe starter solenoid is a single small wire on the solenoid. Locate it onthe solenoid by color, then find same color on the keyswitch.
