Long-time lurker, first time poster. Excellent instructions, and I agree with the hit-or-miss response to loaner tools. Thanks so much!

I'd been putting off this repair for some time and finally got around to it, and finally got that damn clutch nut freed. When my coworkers asked me what I did over the weekend, I was this close to telling them "trying to bust a nut" but figured that'd land me in HR.
After replacing the water pump, I wanted to run a basic leak test before embarking on the Fan Shroud Adventure. Battery is also starting to go, but I've got a jumpbox, and it does hold enough of a charge to not reset the clock.
When I go to start it, it doesn't attempt to turn over and is just a short electical whine. No clicking, etc. Did my ignition switch fail at the worst possible time?
What else could it possibly be?
Also, how much coolant did y'all pour into the radiator cap before starting, or did you let the pump run dry to pull it through the reservoir? I know that might be a dumb question
but didn't see a mention of it in the thread.
