I have since replaced the battery to no avail.
It still cranked very slowly.

I removed the starter and had it rebuilt.
I just finished installing the starter and
it still cranks very slowly and "stalls" when
trying to crank.

I'm starting to think that the AC compressor
might have frozen and that it what is causing
the slow cranks.

Any ideas on this?

I'm going to remove the belt and see what happens
but that won't be until next weekend or maybe

Any other ideas or theories welcomed.
