Did the fuse blow before you changed the switch/ Or did you change the ignition switch for other issues?
The termanels may not be positioned properly on the starter. Does the starter harness have a molded end or is it loose wires? The original wiring has a molded end. There is only a battery cable and a solonoid engagement wire (small one). You're issue is probably the solonoid engagement circuit shorting out. It was real common for the routing of the wiring to the starter to be to close to the exhaust manifold and melt. Or twist when the termanel is tightened on the starter shorting to the starter case. You need to first visually inspect the wiring. Start at the starter and follow it up to the Power distribution center. You should find the issue somewhere in that inspection.
Let me know how this works for you?

A fuse that is consistently blowing is telling you that there is a short in that system. Don't attempt to bridge it or use a larger amp fuse or you will have a major problem. You will need to start tracing wiring to destinations to find the short. If while moving harnesses around problem ceases to exist, look at nearby items where you are working and try to locate what was grounding. Sometimes people will stop if short disappears, leaving open the possibility of it happening again.
If you are not comfortable working with wiring, then leave it to professionals who do this every day. It's not really difficult but requires patience and a good bit of knowledge to do this right!

I had a prolem like this one time a while back. what i did was got the wiring diagram and checked everything that was running through that 30 amp fuse. on the one i was working on it ended up being an injector wire pinched under the valve cover and it didnt short out till the car was driven til it warmed up and expanded after the valve cover gasket was changed. hope this helps!
