Trouble with starter 67 Galaxie Wagon

Hello all
I have been working on a 1967 Ford Country Sedan 390 2bbl which I acquired recently.I had a clog in the fuel sending unit ,fixed that and now in running into trouble with the starting system.It cranks over very slowly,if at all. I purchased a new battery,battery cables,starter solenoid,and had the starter tested and the test turned out fine. I even had a buddy of mine loosen the distributor and turn it as I was cranking to no avail. I have tried jump starting it and even tried a bigger battery in it and it still has alot of trouble cranking. I removed the spark plugs to see if the carb was getting fuel and at that time it cranked over fine,but once the plugs were reinstalled it just would barely crank. I doubt its the battery cause I swapped batteries with my 97 F250 and both batteries start the F250 just fine. Should I remove the starter and have it tested somewhere else? Where else should I look to try to fix this? Thanks

Before you do anything else run a ground from the motor to the batery and try again , jumper lead will do to see if its the problem
