Duh. It was broke.
The repair went well. Ifixit guides with pictures are invaluable on difficult repairs. The only problem was the T8 driver supplied with the RROD kit is junk. I removed one screw and on the next one the shaft started spinning in the handle. Luckily I had a set of Torx bits of my own.
Don't be afraid to really heat up the motherboard to get the solder reflowed.
