Helping out a fellow PSD guy

Im kinda new to the ORG and havent had my PSD truck for more than a month since after 322,000 miles the 22re Yota gave up the ghost. Anyways a coworker of mine has 2002 PSD almost exactly like my truck, but bone stock. Before I ever road in the truck he said he was having no crank issues every now and again, which I never witnessed before. After reading other posts on here I told him to replace both batts at once, and he did.
We went to lunch together in his truck truck started fine. After eating Chipotle, we hop in to head back when and the thing would not crank. He claims he had this issue before every once in awhile. After about 15 minutes and probably 60 turns of the key it mysteriously started. Batt gauge shows plenty of power and when it does crank it spins the motor fast and with authority, so I didnt think it was the starter.
When you try to start it you here oneloud CLICK from the pass fender but the starter doesnt turn.??????

Is it the starter soilenoid?
How can I help him diagnose it?

Thanks in advance for the info.

has he had the cam sensor replaced? Thats a recall item, i think every stroke has had that one replaced.
is it a manual trans?
i would have the starter tested or you can test it buy jumping the wires, just don't arc it out

if your hearing the click that means the relay in theory is working.
check starter ground and starter relay cable to starter
other than that check starter like i said, check starter relay and if manual trans
check clutch pedal position sensor and manual lever position sensor.

I just carfaxed his truck and it has had the cam sensor replaced. Its an automatic. I think we are just gonna try replacing the starter solenoid???????????
When his starter does spin it turns over like a low compression gas engine.

I asume the starter ground is hooked to the body right next to the sarter?

Ya pull it off and have it tested and replace solenoid if needed.
that's where i would start. Check the grounding while your under there.

i just had the EXACT same problem with my truck. My local Ford dealer hooked me up with a starter. The bushings in the starter are wore out and sticking intermittently. Replace starter, problem solved.

if it cranks fast when it does crank after the prob. then next time it locks up like that try manually rolling the motor one way or the other with the pulleys by hand a smidge then try to crank again. if that works he prolly has a bad spot in the ring gear.
