RE: 80 Jeep J10
Have you checked the starter. If it will not turn over and the battery is good, either the starter is bad or you are not getting power from the ignition switch to the starter relay. Possable relay. Do you have a test light?

But there is a new battery in it now and it is connected right? When you turn the ignition switch on does the heater blower, radio, etc. work ok?

RE: 80 Jeep J10
I do not have wiring diagrams for something that old. But I would check fusable link wires coming off of the starter relay/solinoid were the + battery cable connects.

RE: 80 Jeep J10
Go to this site. You will probably find the wiring you will need. Sounds like a fusible link has blown somewhere and not allowing current to go to the ignition.

Being way2old is why I need help from younger minds.
