I accidently installed my batter backwards and I quickly fixed it. But now it will not start. I replaced the battery cables the starter selenoid the ignition switch the voltage regulator and still nothing I have checked the voltage on all the cables to the starter selenoid and there is power going to all. I desperatly need some help. Thank you

Welcome to the forum, thanks for the donation. You may need to pull the starter and have it tested. Around here some of the national brand autostores will check starter for free. Sometimes I lay the starter on the ground, hook up jumper cables, see if I can get any action from the starter, that is a no load test. As far as hooking up your battery wrong, I don't know what all that might effect?
