No connection from the pins to the case. I may be able to borrow mega ohm meter from someone at work today.

Using GFCI's with refrigerated appliances is a Bozo No-No-- all the manufacturers say that right in the Use and Care Guide:
You don't have to pay big bucks for a megger and they are a very handy instrument to have in your arsenal. Here's the megger I use ==> http://amzn.to/R8LDGd
And here's an example of how to use it:

Ok. Well I hooked it up to a regular wall outlet and both fans kicked right on!
Now I have to figure out if it is getting cold ie and to charge it with freon.
my father inlaw has the line for charging but I think I need to know what type of freon to put in.
THANK YOU ALL AGAIN FOR YOUR HELP!!
Trying to find what else I can fix so I can keep posting.

I think i misunderstood you post from the start
i thought your problem was just the wiring , but it looks like it's much more than that
you have fans running , but you say nothing about the compressor running , nor do you know if the compressor is even pumping
selecting a conversion freon to convert from the r12 the system came with to a replacement is a job for refrigeration repair person , who work with the replacement and knows the pitfalls and problems that will come when using the replacement
charging a system is not a simple thing . it's not a job that can be reduced to a few words on a blog site
here are just a few things that need to be done
1: the filter dryer must be changed if the system it empty
2: the system is pressureized to test pressure with nitrogen
3: system is leak tested
4: a vacuum is pulled to 30 microns
5: a freon is chosen
6: system is charged part way and pumping action and freon flow is watched to be sure flow pressures are in line with the amount of freon added
7: system is topped off , frost pattern is checked and ampture draw on compressor is checked
this is a job for your local refrigeration contractor , or a really good appliance repairman ( not all of them will do this work )
the pitfalls and problems with this type of repair are more than you can count , don't go it alone , hire someone .
