Check also main battery-engine/gearbox-chassis main earth/ground cable for clean connections, and main Batt+ connection to the starter solenoid.
Use a second (jump-start) battery as well. If that speeds things up, replace the battery.
Thanks will check the connections and earths tomorrow and see from there
