The voltage regulator usually smokes itself when the battery is hooked up backwards. You should have voltage at the starter solenoid, though, or your battery isn't supplying. If that's the case check for broken battery terminals, plastic caps still on the battery posts, good ground connection and power connection at starter solenoid for battery. Hope that helps.
