I just acquired an 86' SVO that the previous owner gave up on after putting the battery in backwards. It is getting no power to anything, battery is in correctly now lol, and it looks like something got fried. When you turn the key nothing happens, no power to anything, and it won't crank using a hand trigger. I immediately suspected the starter solenoid, however that doesn't quite explain why nothing gets any power at all right? The main fusable link from the solenoid to the alternator is intact. I bypassed the solenoid all together and no power gets out of the alternator to the rest of the car it seems, but I wanted to ask second opinions before I throw money at anything.
