Default '91 hardbody starting issues... help please!

So, I just picked up a '91 Hardbody from a friend. Supposedly all it needed was a battery and tires. I replaced the battery and the battery cable ends. After that she started up and idled fine. I shut it down and came back to it the next day to work on it some more. I tried starting it and it started cranking but before it ran it just died on me. I checked fuses and the engine control fuse was blown. I replaced the fuse. When I went to start her back up I turned the key to the on position and it started beeping like normal and the fuel pump kicked on. Now when I turn the key to actually start the truck I get nothing at all. I try again and get nothing. no beeping and no fuel pump with the key in the on position. I have to pull the negative cable off the battery before it will beep with the key in the on position and fuel pump to kick on again.

Anyone got any ideas or suggestions? Thanks in advance for any help or input!

First thing, check the fusible links at the battery. They look like plain wires. See if they are burned or broken.

I confess: I don't know where the fusible link is or how difficult it is to remove, but would it be a simple test to see if a small amount of current goes through the wire? Do you have an Ohm meter?
