I too have this same problem. I am interested in cutting out the links and putting in 20 amp breakers as stated before by another poster. Is the 20 amp breakers the correct size? Thanks.
Ok, I have replaced the fusible links with breakers and still nothing, I have power at the coil with the key on and power at the alternator with the key off. I have power to nothing else. Could the ignition switch be bad? It has been sticking on me for the last few weeks. I have also tried jumping the solenoid and nothing. I think I am going to get the battery tested in the morning.

To jump a CJ solenoid and get a hard starter turn no matter the ignition switch I use a booster cable from the battery positive to the starter side post of the solenoid. This will turn the starter if the starter is good and the cable down to it is good.
I also use a booster cable from the battery negative to verify the grounds. I would be clamping it in the body tub at this point thinking the tub has lost it;s ground because of no headlights.
