Q: "What would be wrong with your 1990 Chevy K1500 series truck if the fusible link is fine and the solenoid and starter are fine but it still wont kick over?" Besides the obvious double/triple checks of battery connections and main battery lead resistance.... and assuming you don't go completely dead when the key is turned... 1) double check wiring on starter if recently replaced. There are often 2 prongs on the solenoid on the GMs, and if the ign wire is hooked to the wrong one, the starter wont turn . the other prong is often unused after they went to HEI ignition. if you have a volt meter you can check for voltage at the solenoid wire with the key in "start". 2) if no voltage at that wire with key in "start" position, possible bad or disconnected NSS (neutral safety switch). This is normally found at the base of the steering column on GMs with column shift automatics. If manual trans, there may be a switch at the clutch pedal. Check voltage with volt meter with key in "start" position. 3) if no voltage to safety switch, you might have a bad ign switch. This is found about halfway up the column on most GMs of that era. The column must be partially dropped to get to it. A wiring diagram from a manual will help to check which wire should have voltage with key in "start". If no voltage there, you need the diagram to tell you where to go next (the fusable link i think is part of that side of the circuit).
