So what happens when you turn the key? Check the battery voltage?

Wiggle the shift lever to see it it's the neutral switch. In the old days I'd use a screwdriver and short from the battery terminal coming into the starter to the solonoid wire, to see if the starter works.

There's a barely audible rrr rrr rrr sound.

How do I check battery voltage? I got a jump. There's power. But engine won't start. Is it starter or celinoid? (Whatever it's called? )

Solonoid. ..

I still think you've got a dead or shot battery. A charge overnight would be good. Use a cheap voltmeter to measure battery. 12.4 volts, 14.7 running. Use a screwdriver to jump the starter solonoid battery wire to the smaller wire connection to see it it turns over, if you can get at it.
