Tell me exactly how can you tell a battery is good. Is it the little green eyeball on top of the battery for me that don't mean a thing.

I will give you a crash course on dealing with batteries and connections so comeback and we'll fire this toy up without the help of a booster battery. Get your printer or paper/pencil ready.

Before we start do you have a voltmeter we need this to track the problem. When you do-check for power at the coil positive terminal while key is in On position-do you have it?

Or do this swap battery for a known good one and see what happens, make sure its clean/tight.

BTW did you check all the fuses upfront and in cab.

Turn key to On-check for power at coil positive terminal-do you have it?

Also Put key to start position-hold it there find the litttle wire at starter do you have power.

When you turn key On do you see the alternator/oil etc on the dash.
