taking longer to crank

Hey guys heres my question, I just the past couple days I ahve noticed that my truck is turning over more times than normal to start, my truck is a 2001 7.3 with 154000 miles and it has always cranked right up in the first second or two, now it is taking about 5 seconds and it does not matter if it has been pluged in or if I just turned it off and then back on. starter is turning strong and the batteries are strong. Thanks for your help.

Mine's doing the same and has been for a while. Cleaned all battery connections and my starter is 2-3 years old now but considering replacing it with the geared-down one from db electrical. According to what I've read, that'll fix it for sure. Good luck!

From all the research, the starter from dbelectrical.com puts a smile on everyones face. I don't really know the numbers though!

I was woundering if the glow plugs or the gp relay could make this happen?
