Yeah, what the other guy said. Have you checked the voltage difference between where the cable connects to the solenoid and where it coneects to the starter- while cranking? You might have to much resistance in the starter cable. I'm not an electrician but that would be a simple way to check the difference and give you an idea of what you have.

I agree with Black88coupe, if you have been having a problem for a while and you changed the starter, solenoid and battery then the problem lies in your cables or relay.
