    Well, seeing everything after the main 60 amp fuse is protected with fusible links and smaller fuses that would blow first
    if anything was wrong. I'd suggest it could be the ignition switch that is causing it to blow.

    remove fuse 13 and 14 and start relay
    then recheck
    hope you have plenty of spare fuses
    then refit fuse 13 retry
    refit fuse 14 retry
    then have a really good look at the wiring around the starter motor
    then refit the start relay
    retry
    as soon as the fuse blows no need to test any further
