Slow Crank, No Start

Hey guys looking for some help on a 06 6.0 that I'm working on. The issue is that it will hardly crank. Guy says that the truck just shut off and wouldn't start back up. When I say slow crank I mean extremely slow to the point where it barely moves the engine, and obviously not starting at those speeds.

What I have done so far, replaced batteries with 2 brand new batteries, replaced the starter twice to ensure I didn't get a bad one, pulled off the belt and checked all pulleys all seemed OK, A/C compressor isn't locked up, tried cranking it without the belt and there was almost no difference in cranking speed - still extremely slow, tried changing the whole FICM, unplugging the crank position sensor and plugging it in, and that's about it no difference. The only thing I can think of is wiring to the starter or maybe the motors gone.. I am stumped.

Looking for some opinions of ideas of what it could possibly be or some help to get this thing spinning over at least.

Could be a lot of things. The next thing I would do is pull the glow plugs and crank it to see if there's any water in the cylinders

Try turning the motor by hand with a ratchet see if engine components are in a bind

Tried cranking it over by hand. Moves almost too easy. Way easier than my 6.0 does when I crank it over by hand. I almost would say it doesn't have much compression but that would make me believe that it would just spin right over? Correct me if I'm wrong

Well that eliminates bottom end drag problems. What kind of volt/amp draw down are you getting on the batteries? Compression, hydrolock problems next thing to check.

Any smoke? Have you checked coolant pressure? when my hgs went out it would hydrolock the motor but I could open the degas cap and relieve pressure. Idk?

Thing doesn't even crank at high enough RPMs for it to smoke it cranks at like 2 RPMs.

Did a voltage drop test on the batteries and starter and everything seemed normal. I am thinking it is a compression issue, it just seems way too easy to crank turn by hand

When I first read your post I was thinking poor maintenace led to spun bearings but when you post that it turns over by hand "too easy", that has me totally stumped. I can't imagine that it's a hydrolock issue because that should make it impossible to turn. I would pull the glow plugs just to see how it cranks with no compression at all.

I've hear bad a/c compressors causing slow crank, also heard stand pipes causing not start.
