    Good to hear. Check those battery cables especially the positive, make sure they arn't installed backwards, and that the bolt is not stripped and is the correct one for the application. Make sure the battery is strapped down, and not loose in the engine compartment. Those cables should not go loose if everything is correct. Sounds like you got yourself a nice n* enjoy
