    If its spinning nice on the bench, but not so well on the truck i would look for a bad engine earth strap (if one is even fitted, i once had an engine earthing through the choke cable). I have previously added a ground from one of the starter mounting bolts to the frame and it really increases the power going through the starter

    also be sure the ground from the exhaust stud to the firewall is in place - missing that causes all kinds of weird problems

    Found the issue, positive cable going to starter was to corroded. Surprised me as it passed the voltage and ohms test.

    Now I need to decide if I want to keep the new starter. The old one was for an auto transmission and had the extra wire to the ballast. New one is for a manual (which I have) and no extra wire.

    Really surprised me too. Normally it's the ground leads that corrode...

    As I removed the cable it was looking really close at it and the terminal fell off the cable! Bunch of corrosion came out with it. Must have been just enough to pass voltage but not enough for amps.
