Do you hear the fuel solenoid in the carburetor click if you flip the key on and off? If not, the keyswitch has no voltage. If it does click the solenoid, then keyswitch has voltage. If you follow the battery cable positive cable to the starter solenoid and jump from the cable to the switch terminal on the same solenoid, does engine spin?

engine spins when solenoid is jumped

Do you have a voltmeter or a test light to see if there is voltage past the fuse holder to the keyswitch?

Expert:  Curtis B. replied 10 months ago.

So it is blowing the fuse. Does it blow after start, or when key is turned on?

no i wiggled it around and it started the fuse did not blow maybe a bad connection
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
do you think i should replace the fuse holder??
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
it started five to six times after in a row
Expert:  Curtis B. replied 10 months ago.

No, I would do nothing if it is not blowing each time it is started, fuse may have just not making a good connection.
