  Thanks to all the folks who gave me advise about my dead battery!  That's
kind of you all.  The battery and engine grounds are okay, and the
voltage regulator and alternator are okay, so it appears to be a
combination of having left it dead through the winter, and having an old
beat-up starter.  I'm off to pry the old battery loose and take it to the
a local battery specialist who (I'm told) can drain it dead and charge it
up and evaluate whether it's got enough life left in itself to be worth
keeping.  If not, I'm retrying a sealed lead-acid.

Thanks all!
