What exactly am I supposed to check here?  It's pluged in and it's a
black box... :)

Yes!!  I did it several ways to make sure though.

It 'clicks' then nothing.  I checked it again today just to make
sure.  It hits 7.8 innitially then back down to 0.0

I did and 0.0  perhaps my jumper was useless.  I should try this
check again but regarless I saw that the pump at least got 7.6
innitially then nothing indicating that there was some surrent in
the wires.

Again - the jumper might have sucked.

I think this as well but it is difficult to locate the ground wire
on the driveway.  I'll make a better inspection tomoorw.  Where
should it lead down to?

On a side note I tried to start it several times just to 'make
sure'.  The starting is beginning to sound weak even though the
battery is at 11.8 volts.  Don't know if that shows anything but I
thought I would mention it.

Thanks again - I appreciate the attention  :)
