Chris here with a big "WooHooooooo!". Did you hear it from up there? Other than having a hard time cracking the bolts holding the old starter on, replacing it with the new one was very simple. We reconnected the battery, turned the key, pushed the button and one second later our engine was started! So.... after all of the conjecture, the starter was indeed bad! I'll post some pictures of it when we get to Charleston, but the wire connecting the solenoid and starter motor was rather melted and there was oil leaking out of a couple of holes on the side we couldn't see. Anyway, ten more minutes and we're off!
