fried wiring

I tried to start my 67 c-10 and my front wiring harness fried. So I went to the junkyard and got a new one and installed it and when I went to turn the key with a fresh battery and new fuses nothing will turn on. the back harness seems fine and all my connections are connected but not even a light or the radio will turn on. please help me revive my truck. Thanks.

#1 -- WHAT fried your harness in the first place??? If you discover that, you'll probably discover why everything is still dead.

#2 -- Sounds silly to ask, but are all the fuses okay? If so, then you probably shorted some major wire out and haven't noticed it yet (see #1).

I'm thinking the same as Horvath. what shorted your wire harness .
was it a bare wire shorted to ground, a pinched wire, or did something short out and burn your harness. if so repair or replace .
do you have a good ground and the positive cable is on the big terminal on the starter.
Is the new wire harness out of the same year of truck , if not the pin location of the wires on the bulk head connecter , may be in a different order, try and find a wire diagram and compare the 2 wire harness if they are different years.
also you may have a loose connection or dirty wire connecters, or the fuseable links at the starter are bad, if so clean and tighten connecters, and check for power at the fuse links
