235 won't start

the truck was running ok, started a little tough, but started. I replaced the generator with a 6 volt alternator, and it rear well too. I went to start if after being idle of few days, and. would not start. I replaced the battery with an Optima 6 volt, put on a 1/0. original cable and still won't start. I check and coil has power, I seem to have spark, the fuel filter l looks to have plenty of fuel, battery is fully charged- I am stumped. Starter is a little slows but better with a new cable adn battery- could it. be the starter??

thanks an any advice.

What size are your ground cables/straps (1/0 (0) or 2/0 (00) are good)?

Make sure your ground strap/cables connection points are good:
- battery to frame
- frame to clutch housing (I connect this one to a starter mounting bolt).

Cover all shiney/cleaned connection points with copper-impregnated anti-seize "grease" (sold in most auto-parts-stores in tubes or small jars.

this has been double-posted - one location (The Electrical Bay) is enough
