A. You push the starter button and ABSOLUTELY nothing is heard?

What's the engine? Model and year.
it starts in an instant when provided with proper battery power. Its a 66Hp Yanmar Deisel; 1989. With the engine start battery it just goes "grrrr grrrr grrrr" but does not turn over. I think your "B" above captures it.
