87 grand marquis no start

i just got the marquis for $60 from a friend of my parents with the intention to turn it into a race car but i have a small problem.

i took the battery off my f150 truck and put it in the car. the battery is less then a year old.

when i turn the key it will crank really fast for about 3-5 seconds and then all the sudden go really really slow like its killing the battery. if you wait about a minute it will do the same thing. it will not start. i replaced the starter with a new one and ive still got the same issue. it cranks a little bit faster but still no luck, it acts like its draining the battery really fast. i tried jump starting it with my friends powerstroke diesel pickup and it doesnt help atall. ive also tried jumping the selenoid with a srcewdriver and it does the same thing.
ive also tried using either with no luck. its got really great spark so im really lost here.

any help apprcieted

thanks
ryan

Do you have fuel? Do you hear the pump kick on to prime the lines when you turn the key but dont start the engine?

Re: 87 grand marquis no start

i do have fuel, i can hear the pump kick on and i held the schreader valve open with a small screwdriver and had my friend turn the key, needless to say i got sprayed with gas.


im thinking maybe the cable going to the starter is shorting out somewhere or maybe a ground strap is loose?

im soo lost in fordland
