Check the UVCHs since they supply power to the GPs. I'd try using at least a 10W40 oil if not a 5W40 and see if it helps.
I thought the GPR would draw more than 165A but idk. How long does it stay engaged?

So it cranks fast at first then slows down and eventually will crank? Did I read that right?
If that's the case, sounds like weak battery or both. They need to be MINIMUM 850CCAs each. And you might wanna check all of your connections. Hot and ground.
