its possible you have some starter bolts worked loose so the starter isnt getting good ground?

Yep - no hum, clank, or anything. turn the key, one click and silence... frustrating as I'm sure its something stupid easy, just don't have the time to be able to tear into things...

that sounds like a bad starter. Take it off and put power to it. See if it throws the gear forward. If it does that is what also switches the power to the motor. You can probably take it apart clean and lube it and put it back together. A starter is very simple to work on and just few screws. also giving it smack with a hammer can make a sticky brush in the motor drop down and start working again. I like to take them apart when they do this and just lube the brushes in the holder so they slide and wont stick.

This has nothing to do with any fuel filters. separate issue.

Up and running!

It ended up being a bad starter. Pisses me off since I had a remanufactured one installed less than a year ago. Oh well, live and learn. At least I can be back on the road in the morning knowing I now have a brand new starter. Thanks again for all the advice and suggestions!
