Bird getting no power

Just put motor back in car, carefully wired back up but car is getting No power. When I first hooked up battery the alternator wire did spark due to it sitting on metal. It popped pretty good. What would be the first thing to check?

Look at the black fuse box next to the battery. There's a separate compartment on the side that says MEGAFUSE. You blew the megafuse.

Nothing says "OOPS!!" like blowing a 175 Amp fuse.

I did it on my Toyota. An NOS line too close to the battery, well you know the rest! Welded the two NOS lines together in one spot!

Since then, I always make sure the positive terminal has a cover on it. Negative too, but that's OCD.
