This is a problem with an older Bobcat skid steer, I removed the starter to replace the Bendix, after I reinstalled it there is no power to my ignition or any of my accesories How does the power get from the battery to the ignition system I realize this is a car forum, but the system looks similar to an old '60s or '70s Ford. I've been trying to get this thing running for 3 days, any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Whitey

Sounds like you may have fried the fusible link. Try tugging on the relay wires a bit, if they start to stretch, you have a burned link. Replace!
