Disconnect the batterys.

Clean & inspect ALL the battery cables - to starter, to junction block,even the ones on the back of the shut off switches, then secure them.
Don't forget the ground cables too, even from engine block to chassis.

I would then check the voltage drop on each cable, one at a time.
If you get more than .3volts while cranking, I would replace it.

Is the starter motor "rebuilt", "remanufactured" or "new" ?
It is possible that the starter motor could be defective, you would have to check the current draw on it while cranking.

Good luck with your repair.

   Almost all   hard starting proplems can be traced to a bad connection in the start system some where . On older buses its a good idea to strip back some insulation on the cable and see if there is some greencroshion showing. Won't carry full amperage
. Time to replace.
