crankshaft position sensor, slow crank?

Will an unplugged or bad crankshaft position sensor cause a slow crank?

I put my truck back together after studs, injectors, etc and it cranks VERY slow. The batts are good, the starter is 1 month old.

The only thing I know that's not right is the clip is broken on the crankshaft sensor and the plug will not stay on. I am wondering if this is causing a slow crank.

Checked starter, it's good.
Removed all glow plugs, still cranks slow, not hydrolocked.
Zip-tied crank position sensor plug (for now).
Digital battery charger says both batts are 100%.

What am I missing? Grounding issue?

Digital battery charger is not a load tester, get your batteries load tested.

Sent from my phone that somebody didn't help me get.

With the plugs out it should zing over pretty quick. I'll bet the batteries are weak/bad.

Was it a Ford starter or a parts store piece?

The starter is a Napa reman, about a month since installed. Took it off today and had it load tested, good.

Gonna have the batts load tested tomorrow.

Tested batteries, one was bad, replaced it. Still cranks slow.
Removed, cleaned, reconnect all ground on engine. Still cranks slow.

Gonna check voltage at starter. Maybe a bad wire.

Any other ideas?

Other than what you said you was going to check, Batteries should always be replaced in pairs, the "old" one will eventually wear the new one down. A bad starter will "drag" a motor down.
