So you took the battery off for what reason?

Lastly, you are cranking really good but simply not firing is that correct?

This isn't chat. It's extremely hard to understand what you're saying/asking without complete sentences and punctuation.

Have you tested each battery? You have to test them with them isolated from one another. Load test each one.

Have you uncapped the fuel bowl to see if it's full? Also pull the top plug off the HPO reservoir and peer in to check the level.
