in 1997 the large wire to the back of the alternator has the wire from the battery but also has the power wire that feeds the distrubition block on the firewall fender area on the driver side you failed to put it on or popped the fusible link that is in the circuit

I did exactly that and it now has power and te engine runs fine!! Thank you for your help!!
