These circuits are mostly in a row in the fuse box. Maybe the wire feeding that row has burned out. Recommend you access the back of the fuse box to see if you have power to those fuses.

Possibly fusible link in the positive battery cable. However if the fusible link blew you wouldn't have any power at all. Check for codes in the abs system. Most likely shorted out a relay.

88 s10 2.8 5 speed have power to lights, blower, radio, but wont turn over when turning key no clicking nothing wont even start or turn over by crossing solenoid

Since you have power to your accessories, here are a few more things to consider:
1: Automatic transmission not in park or the neutral safety switch is faulty
2: On manual transmissions clutch pedal not depressed or or clutch start switch failure
3: Broken or loose wires in the starting circuit. Inspect all wires and connectors at the battery, starter solenoid, and ignition switch
4: Starter motor pinion jammed in flywheel ring gear. Manual transmission. place transmission in gear and rock the vehicle to manually turn the engine. Remove starter and inspect pinion and flywheel

I have a 89 madza 2600 4x4, and all of a sudden the blower moter and the wipers stopped working and the fuses look good. Is there maybe a common fusable link or something? is this just a coincindence that...

They could share a common ground-that seems the only way they could be connected. I don't believe a fusible link would be responsible for both. If a ground screw got loose, that could explain why they went out.
First step is to see if either motor is getting power on the hot wire to them. Use a voltmeter or test light, with key in ON and the blower motor switch on or the wipers turned to on.
If you have a bad ground for either, your test light will light up if touching the hot wire and you have clipped the tester to a known good ground. If you get a good signal on both, then you need to check the ground wire for both.
You can check the motors with jumper wires. At the blower motor connector, is only a power wire and a ground wire. Hook jumper wires off a battery into the motor connector. Tells you right away if the motor is good or bad.

You may have gotten the +pos and -neg cables crossed, causing the fusable link wire to burn out.
Check for the burned link wire between the alternator and the battery side of the starter solenoid on
top of the right fender well, and splice in a new fusable link wire, any parts store should have this.
The fusable link is there to protect the charging system from damage when things like this happen.
But once it's running be sure to check the charging system. Hope this helps.

The smaller wires that hook to the big post on the solenoid. These are fusable link wires. It sounds like one is burnt or not hooked up. These feed all the power to the car. Did you hook the grounds to the top of the starter bolt?

I changed form a 300 six to a 302 and went to start it up and it turn over about three times and quit but you can jump it at the solenoid it will crank.ihave changed solenoid

check the ignition wire from you solenoid to your ignition in the column they usually have a fusable link since the 302 is harder to turn over than the inline six you probably just blew that fuse or burnt the wire the easiest way to check it is follow ur third wire on ur solenoid its like a 12 or 14 guage wire and check for charring or hopefully for ur sake a fusable link
