I was replacing the tranny lines due to a leak and didn't remember to unhook battery until I arced the starter to ground. Now a previously working starter just clicks. I checked both fusible links at the starter with ohm meter, took starter in for testing and its fine , I checked all the fuses I can find under the das left of the steering column, but they all checked good. Any advice be greatly appreciated

First line of defense is the fusible links, my other thought is battery terminals or cables. Have you checked the battery?

Yes I checked the cables and the battery charger shows 100 percent charge. I'll try a different battery today.
