did u wire it up correctly making sure the possitive lead is only on the positive contact on starter and not earthing out to body. maybe the starter shat itself(Possible)
check all connetions are tight

possibly before the fuse went it may have done some damage to the starter motor as well. i know thats what fuses are for to prevent damage. unless a higher amp fuse was used by mistake and has caused damage to starter.
Knocking sound .....?
Does it sound like the nut is getting thrown onto the fly wheel (like a "click" sound (solenoid working) but its not turning over?
I know if a car has been sitting a while and the starter is not working/seized, i have gotten a few going just by smacking it with a spanner (Dont Be Shy Belt it)
Good luck let us know
