Hi Rick, my name is Jason.
Do you have a hand held volt meter, and do you know how to take voltage measuremnts?
Ground meter negative to battery negative (the actual starting battery if you have 2 batteries). Touch meter positive to the lug on the starter motor that the battery cable connects to. Have a helper hold the key to start. Is the voltage under or over 9.5?
