Changed alternator didn't help. Got new battery didn't help. Put new positive ground wire on didn't work. Guy looked at it says its a fusible link from starter to battery but we can't find it. We need help finding where the fusible link is.

Good evening,

The link is at the starter itself. One end is bolted to the same wire the positive cable is mounted at.

If the link failed, it failed for a reason. Just replacing it will not work unless you find the reason. Most of the time it is from the alternator itself. I would suggest checking the wiring harness carefully for any damage. If you do not find any damage, then I would replace the alternator.
