not sure if i have a pic of bolt locatioin but it is up behind the starter and a PITA to get at.
could also be your grounds the stock wires are kinda cheap but if yhou replace the starter get a 6.4 starter spins up much faster and while it didnt really shorten my start time any it didnt need to.
if i can find a pic or good link i will add it to this post

This starter is such a PIA that after looking for the longest time I found whoever put mine on didn't bother with the top bolt, which is hidden up and over the top of the starter as you look at it from below. I tried for the longest time from a creeper, finally found that you can see where the bolt goes from under the wheel well towards the back there's a little gap between the fender tub and the frame. I put my socket on a long extension, folded a piece of paper towel over the bolt head and stuck it on the socket. Set a light shining from behind and you can see through the crack, guide the bolt to the hole and give it a finger spin, then crawl back under and attach the ratchet and finish. If there's an easier way anybody knows I'd love to know it too cause it was a b!tch, my elbow is still recovering.

I think I used a couple of extensions about 8" long and a swivel socket to get in there. When I fool with that area, I disconnect both batteries. I caused quite the spark show when I forgot. Luckily it was a screwdriver and I did not arc weld my ring. There's some good YouTube videos if you search.

it is possibly the starter?I am getting 850 at both batteries according to the auto parts house.I also cleaned the connections very well. So,I should find body ground straps and clean those as well?

It could be the starter. You can either trace and clean the grounds as suggested or pull the starter and bring it to the same auto parts store to be tested. As an alternate, you can tap it lightly with a hammer, and if it starts working, its the starter. I did this to mine and it would work for a little and go bad again, so its not a permanent fix. I'm also not positive the normal parts stores test our batteries to the loads our trucks put on them, but to what a normal small car sees.

slow crank can also be a locked AC compressor or motor issue to name a couple

i would do a 6.4 starter swap that way even if it is not the starter the wrenching you did went for an upgrade vs misdiagnosis LOL
