The first thing you need to do is stop wasting your money by replacing parts. Then get a volt-ohm meter and a test light to test the circuits between the battery, the alternator, the ignition switch, the starter relay and the voltage regulator. (a.k.a. Charging System Circuits)
To start, the "B+" or "BATT" terminal on the alternator (large black wire) MUST have a solid, direct connection to the battery. Check for the proper voltage here. Then, the red wire on the alternator at the "F2" terminal should be HOT at all times. If not, you probably still have a bad fuse link that you missed. The "F1" terminal on the alternator (Light Green wire) is known as your "FIELD" wire. It comes from the "IG" terminal at the voltage regulator. It should be hot any time the key is in the ON position. If not, your voltage regulator is not working or your ignition switch is not providing power to the regulator. Finally, The "F" terminal (Red wire) at the regulator should be hot any time the ignition switch is in the ON position. This actually gets it's power from the starter relay, which gets its power from the ignition switch.

My Car Won't Turn Over

My first thought is to check the fuel pump operation.
Check to see if fuel pump is getting power.
This is how I check the pump.
Usually there is an in-line fuel filter that can be removed.
While its removed...bump the starter to see if gas shoots out the gas line.
If not, there might be a clog at the pump...or the pump needs replacing.
Hope this helps...

On all cars built the last 25-30 years: Never, never pull your battery off when car is running: you can fry a bunch of electronics (computer, sensors, ignition circuits, alternator). Never pull battery off when key is on, either.

you may be getting fuel but you are starving the cylinders from it. after sitting this long, i would replace the injectors because they will corode inside after 7 years. agood injector cleaner might work but they are probably too far gone. you might have sent a lot of corosion from the fuel tank the first time you ran it & that will add to total shut down of the fuel injectors. also check your oil pressure, or it may jump on timing due to stiff cam bearings. depending on klts, it would be good to use slightly heavier oil grade. you may also want to check your ignition coil for proper supply to plugs. bin there, dun that.
