Wont turn fast enough still?

I'm still trying to get my 01 running. It has a brand new starter on it, and I put the batteries in out of my 99 in it. Had the batteries checked, (they are 3 year old motorcrafts) one was perfect the other tested weak at 850cc but good at 800cc. But even with a charger on the jump setting the truck won't turn over no faster then 200 rpm? I'm lost, any input would be a huge help. Thanks

I don't know if it has any part of my cranking problem but I don't have head lights or dash lights. Wait to start and all those lights work just not the ones that light the dash up with the headlights on. Everything else works fine though.

I checked the grounds off the batteries, but none of the rest. I will tomorrow though, thanks. How much juice should I be getting at the starter?

Here's a thought....What kind of starter did you get? I replaced a stock one with a heavy duty gear reduction one and was amazed at how much faster it spins the motor over. If you have a cheaper (weaker) starter it could be your problem even if it is new.

check for voltage drop from the batteries to the starter, make sure there is no corrosion
on the terminals. corrosion will cause high resistance and not allow all the batteries power reach the starter when cranking. u might want to double check fuses for the no light problems.

I should be getting just 12v at the starter right? I put a new positive cable on it but it didn't help any. The ground cables are junk, but they are tight and don't have any corrosion on them. I still haven't checked any other of the grounds. The truck wouldn't run when I got it (gave $2200 for it cc lariat, with supposedly a remand motor, I have a good E99 motor but I'd like to get this one to run or at least find out why it won't before I swap them) but I changed the cps and the ipr. But now I've run into this problem so idk if that did anything for its running problem. I do have AE in route to the house as of last wednesday.

Put your voltmeter on volts dc, put one lead on the positive of the battery and one on the large stud on the starter (easy to say...) and while someone is cranking it, you will get a reading. Then do the ground, one lead on the battery negative and one to the engine (good bare metal). If you get much more that .5 volt reading, it's cause for concern. If both sides read ok, and your batteries are indeed good, then it's likely the starter or a mechanical issue. You can also check your second battery ground to engine, and the cable that connects the 2 batteries the same way. Remember that to get a valid reading, there needs to be a load on the system (cranking) during each test.

Thanks! That's what I needed to know. Sorry I didn't see where you said what kind of starter is it. I really don't know, the guy gave it to me when I got the truck. I'm considering taking it and gettin it checked just to be sure its not a lemon.

I hadnt had a chance to fool with the truck anymore until this past week. I was showin .2 on the engine block with the ground test. The smaller starter post was gettin 12v before cranking. When the truck was cranking and i put it on the big post it was showing .2 as well.

Any input would be great.
