    Does motor even start to turn over? Is the jackshaft engageing but not turning the motor? And lastly have you done a load test on the battery? (I'm learning Hoople :s) I know you said hte battery is new but it wouldn't be the first time something new was defective.

    Take it to AutoZone or OReillys and get them to do it.

    Jump the starter at the battery lead to the green wire at the solenoid, Does it turn over? If not R R the solenoid. No need to replace it you can flip the copper disc and clean the battery lug on the solenoid:s
