Default Need help asap

So after I had recently put everything back together on my ranger (had to weld on new inner fenders), I was connecting the battery to its two fat wires. Upon connection, the truck tried to turn on. I disconnected the wires, and then took out the ignition fuse, but then it was the starter that would constantly click.

The other day when I tried to start the truck, it went without a hitch. Why the hell would it be doing it now?

NEED HELP ASAP

Sounds like something is jumping the starter, Completing the circuit as soon as it's hooked up to the battery. I'd do a visual inspection of the starter and make sure everything looks as it should first and foremost.

I'll do anther visual inspection. If it means anything, I unplugged the alternator last night. Obviously it's plugged back in.
