Ok the next thing is to check all grounds and connections at the starter motor, are they clean and tight? not corroded or green and fuzzy...If they look OK, then do a voltage drop test you'll need a multimeter test the starter circuit not difficult to do WIRES can look good but have might have HIGH RESISTANCE. Let me know if you need the procedure to do a voltage drop test a on the starter circuit.
