Need better word picture: what is "and it acted as though it shorted"? I have no idea what that means.

Where are you grounding the jump pack?

I want a voltage reading at the small terminal when you use your jump pack to try the starter.

I want to know the above, but a guess would be your starter is not good. What brand did you install?
