well depending on which 'hot wire' your speaking of , if it is the one that goes to the control circuits and not the starter wire (which is a negative feed from the keyswitch through the instrument cluster) then i'd say you have a dead short to the frame between the control wiring and fuse panel. That is if it is not blowing any fuses and just burning the wire.
Which terminal on the starter is it hooked to? it should be on the same post as the battery cable. Are all connections isolated well from each other on the solenoid?
also note:
The alternator does pick up its positive feed before it gets up to the keyswitch and instrument panel so you might want to consider having that alternator checked out and check the wiring from it as well. Make sure the charging circuit wire to the battery is not grounded anywhere.
To verify the starter just remove it from the truck and bench test it.

You've been swooped!
i think the starter has a short in it cuz it keeps popping the hot wire on the silinoid

got voltage to the fuses? how did you check them? (ohms? volts? eyeball?)
and Momo, doesn't the same pedal, just different sides, work for forward and rev? you may need to change both switches under the pedal if forward seems OK.

Fact of the week

John Lennon had terrible eyesight and was very self-conscious about it. Early in his career, he would not wear his glasses during performances. In the end, John's 'granny glasses' became one of his most iconic trademarks. His last pair, worn on that tragic day in 1980, are kept at 'The Beatles Story' exhibit in Liverpool, insured for over £1 million.
