when charging a battery it is better that it is disconnected from the car's battery cables and even better if removed, also don't charge it if you smell a rotten egg odor, the cell(s) may be shorted and it could explode. remember red to positive, black to negative, hook the positive up first. don't overcharge the battery, 2 or 3 hours at 4-6 amps is enough charge to have it tested, if it won't charge then the battery is defective and needs to be replaced.

Your plugwire cabling is too 'NEAT'
Make SURE that cables don't run parallel and DO cross over one another as running parallel induces HV pulses in the adjacent cable resulting in misfire.
Get under the hood and mess them up a bit ;-)
JUST the NEAT wiring, not the firing order!

SOURCE: wont start
Is starter engaging but is turning the engine slowly then not turning engine? (that's what I'm reading) If so, check both connections at the block and starter. If reading proper voltage 12v or better, check voltage across battery when in "start" if it drops below 9.5v the starter has failed. (you can turn the engine by hand...correct?)
