The starter would be having too much current draw, replace it.

i highly doubt its the starter poping the fuse.we need more details if you turn the ignition to on 1 click before cranking when all the dash lights light up ready to start and the fuel pump primes does it blow or when you turn it the last click to wind it over after the pump has stopped wirring
