Where are the fuse links for the starter on an 87' chevy pickup?

I cant get power to the fuel tanks on my 87′ chevy pickup and i have read that it could be the fuse links on the starter but i dont know where they are.
If i cant get power to the tanks what else could it be besides the fuse link for the starter?

    In some cases the fuse able links are located in the loom just above the starter you can identify them by the color of the wire (red) with a larger black center section between, You can purchase replacement fuse able link wire at your local auto parts store

    I think you are referring to the fuse-able link. This is usually located on the fire wall, top, center. It is a thin piece of metal with two "stud and nut" looking terminals. Most likely the hot lead from the battery goes through that, Not the big one that goes strait to the starter. I hope this helps.

    did you check the fuse for the fuel pump?

    The fusible links are coming from the large top terminal on the starter solenoid on GM vehicles. There should be several on that truck, and you will need sharp probes to test them with a light or voltmeter. You can reseal the links with RTV black silicone when you are done.
