FORD F-350 BATTERY PROBLEM

1984 Ford F-350 • 110,000 miles

I bought the truck a few days ago, and the guy tried to jump it off and got the jumper cables backwards and it fried a wire and maybe the starter solenoid on the fender, it looks like theres two one on the fender and one on the wheel well, anyways It would kill the batteries even after I put the new on on there after id shut if off. But it would run, and drive find I would just have to charge the battery or jump it. I went to get in it this morning and it was about 7 degrees outside and I put the battery back in, went to start it and at frist everytrhing came on it just wouldn't turn over I turned the key and nothing then I went to turn the key again and nothing came on not my glow plugs nothing, its like its not getting anything when I turn the key, I changed out the ignition cylinder and its still doing the same thing, any idea what could be going wrong?
