Kris i am sorry i couldn't come out there yesterday... But i can still offer advice....
As said before already, the accesories all seem to be functioning normally. Does the starter make any noise at all? If not, i suspect one of three things:
1) Loose wire at the starter. You know which one i'm talking about, the one we had to repair when we were putting the engine in.
2) Could the battery be dead again? It didn't seem dead that one day by looking at the dash lights and the accesories, but when we jumped it with ray's car the starter worked again.
3) (God forbid) Something is F*cked in that engine preventing it from turning. I don't really think this is it, but it's the only other reason i can think of that the starter wouldn't turn. Even if this was the case, you'd still hear the starter engage and try to turn....
That frayed ground on the passenger side won't effect the starter at all, the starter has it's own ground wire coming directly from the battery, which is bolted right next to the starter casing on the engine block.
If the starter is turning and the engine just isn't starting, then we have an entire new situtation to work on....
