HELP MY CJ5 WONT TURN OVER

I jave a 83 CJ5 with the 258 six cyl.
heres what is going on
the starter will barely turn over like the battery is almost dead
heres what I have replaced
new starter
new battery
new solenoid
new ground and positive cables
I even pulled all the sparkplugs thinking I may have a hydro lock and it still just barely turns over
I am pulling my hair out on this one
could it be a major voltage drain from the ignition switch to the starter?
I am at a loss
Please help!!

[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/tongue.gif[/img] Well, Rett........you have eliminated every possibility that there is except one.....did you GROUND the starter by attaching a ground cable to the actual starter FRAME? Whenever I set up diesels that is a must. In fact the diesel starters HAVE a ground lug right on the starter.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif[/img]
