no power to fuse block?

i am still chasing electrical gremlins and need help once again.

here is the problem, i have no power to fuse block. have positive battery cable run to starter. smaller guage wire from same starter post to to screw lug on back of alternator (have power there) short wire going to plug in connection on alt (power on that wire) the other wire coming out of eplug on alt has no power coming out of it no matter if key is on or off. is this even the right place too look or does power come from somwhere else (there is a terminal block under fender next to batt with power wire connected to it)

any help will be greatly appreciated

thanks wayne

This may help you out >> http://www.madelectrical.com/electri...evymain1.shtml the main power runs thru the Horn Relay on most of these cars/trucks. The Fusible Link may be burnt.

Chances are, the accessory wire (smaller red wire from battery/starter) is broken somewhere in the harness....If I remember correctly there is a joint in the harness just behind the distributor...I have seen them come apart there

If my memory serves me right ..... should have a 12 guage red wire coming from the alt to the factory splice, located over by the voltage regulator (under a bunch of tape) from that factory splice to the radiator support junction block, from that junction block (actualy a post) to the battery. Also from the factory splice, located over by the voltage regulator, to a short piece of orange wire (fusable link), from the orange wire to the fuse block, main pwr feed. Also from that factory splice to the horn relay
