FORD RANGER FUSE PROBLEM

1996 Ford Ranger • 194,000 miles

Hi. I replaced the clutch, throw out bearing, pilot bearing and the clutch stuff works great, however somehow I have a short now that I cant find, and is in the starter circuit.
If I turn on the key, it blows two fuses, one for the starter relay fuse, and backup light fuse. I dont understand that one from a clutch job, but its whats happening. Both fuses blow at the same time, 10 ampers too. Suggestions?
We did not unhook the wires from the starter, just dropped it and suspended it on the suspension. Unhooked the battery tho.

For me the reverse light and starter controlled circuit-pinched together and shorted to direct ground and it will blow both fuses simultaneously
