thanks for that, i suspected it might be the problem and so tried jump starting from a car. the engine turns when connected but does not catch. thinking it could be flooded i left it for an hour or so before trying again; still the same result. after disconnecting from the car and trying, it did the same rattling thing. do you think the battery is still the problem, thanks?
