Was pouring down rain when I got in my vehicle. Truck wouldnt start (old battery) so I rolled it down the driveway and popped it in gear, it started. I was thinking when I get to point B, I wouldnt have any help to start. So my thoughts were to change out the battery. I pulled it into the garage and kept the vehicle running. I disconnected the positive, negative cables, pulled out the bad battery and proceeded to install a much larger battery. This is when the positive cable came in contact with metal and the truck immediately died. When I put in the freshly charged battery I tried to start but it didnt start. Okay so I checked all the fuses, all okay. I disconnected the outlet gas line from the fuel filter and turned the ignition. Gas shot out pretty far so I know the fuel pump works. I took off air cleaner and poured gas into carb, it ran for a bit. So I think its an electrical problem that tells the injectors to open/close. (Since gas is going to the injectors). Must it be a relay or something telling the injectors to open? Thanks for your help

Okay I took a photo... On the positive cable there is a big black wire with yellow on it. I take it thats the main cable... next to it, there is a red wire with black electrical tape, that is for the head lights... Then there is a black connector which has 2 brown wires on the left side of it (this can be disconnected) and it has 2 red wires on the other side that clamp on the battery post. These red wires - you can see black on the wires... which to me appears to look fried.... Is this the fusible link and does both sides of the black connector (fusible link?) need to be replaced? Or just the red wires? or ??? $10 if you are correct, thanks Doc.

PS I took it to autozone and they said that is not a fuse? I will change out the 2 red wires and reconnect and see whats up... Thanks, Derek
