|HalfOunce||At the big post on the starter you will have the battery wire as well as 2-3 red 10gauge wires the last 4 inches will be fuse link, also terminating at that same post. one or more of those fuse links are burned out. you can get the fusable link wire at the part store, do NOT solder these back in,only crimp. The red wires other end will terminate at various places, one being the back of alt, another at the blower relay, and another at the fuse box.|

|helrazr3||go under the car and check at the starter solenoid for 12 volts. and follow the small wire attatched to the positive bat cable and check the other end for 12 volts. do the headlights come on?|

|david-b||I'm out here working right now... I have 12v everywhere at battery, at alternator, at voltage regulator... seems pretty good in the bay. Not sure what wires to check under the dash though. All fuses under there are good. Still nothing at all working.|

Haynes manuals usually dont have wiring diagrams, you have to get the factory service manual printed by GM or Helms, check ebay.
On 70's GM cars, the fusable link is located by the starter solonoid on top of the starter, not by the battery.

|helrazr3||the positive cable itself is very thick but you will also see a smaller wire along with it thats the one you want to look at|

|helrazr3||its in the wire that goes from the battery to the starter. it should be easy to trace. there may be more than one but they will be right in the area of the battery|

Is your car equipped with a fuseable link at the starter?
Positive cable goes to starter, then a wire with the fuseable link feeds off the main starter terminal to supply the rest of the car with power. If the fuseable link goes bad, no power to car. Test for power at starter.
do you have a chassis service manual(as used by the dealership), it will have complete wiring diagrams.

|helrazr3||sounds like you popped a fuseable link. trace the wires to the solenoid and see if you have a reading. if you follow them you should see a tag that says fuseable link|

Thanks for helping though! Really appreciate it. Anyone else got any ideas?
