This might be a stupid question but is there a fuse needed in order for the starter to work?? Does anybody know what size fuses go in the fuse box I can't read the letters on the box. Thanks

No fuse. Don't even worry about a fuse if your starter won't turn over. Clean the battery posts and clean the negative fitment of the negative cable on the block and see if she fires.

everything is new when i turn the key to the "on" position i can hear the voltage regulator click on but nothing happens then i turn it to start. I had a buddy turn the key and used a multimeter (one on the + side on the starter selnoid where the starter cable goes and the other on a ground) and nothing but on the other side of the starter selnoid it reads 12 volts. What do you think the problem is??

I would start with the basics. Take the battery into your local parts store and have it checked. Check all connections for tightness and corrosion.

I ended up opening up the solenoid out of frustration with similar problems a while ago.

It turned out to be a combination of battery and solenoid.

(After opening up the solenoid, I noticed that the copper contacts were only half there due to years of zapping)...
