    Glad to see ya got it started,,,, there were a few things you could have done to help with the start so ya didn't have to jump it. I'm assuming it needed to get gas up to the engine based on all the pumping you were doing. Pouring a tad down it's throat to get something in the cylinders could have gotten ya up and running without jumping it off. Also,,, was the gas in it 2.5 to 3 months old also??? If so it's probably not very good fuel. I also noticed you left the jumper cables on after it started,,,, I've seen that destroy the alternator on the vehicle used to jump it off. I've always had someone there to pull the positive off as soon as it started to avoid an overload condition but it looked like you were doing that solo. Looks liked it all worked out and you have yourself a running play toy. Keep up the good work :))
