Did you check the resistance in the cables while cranking? They most always show near zero by themselves. Connect your voltmeter to both ends of the cable so it's in parallel. Set it for volts, not amps. Voltage reading should be very low while cranking. Higher reading on the meter means there's resistance in the cable. Should show less than 1.5-2.0 volts. Do each section of the circuit that way.

Right procedure, wrong spec. Upwards of 4 volts combined for both cables would make for a non-starter for sure. .15 - .2 volts per cable would be more ideal.

I was thinking more for 6v systems. Never really had to do it with 12s.

With a 6-volt system, your specs would be even worse, by a factor of two. If the cables absorbed 4 volts worth of loss in a 6-volt system, that would represent 2/3 of the available power being taken up by cable resistance, and only 1/3 left to crank the engine. 2 volts at the starter would not be enough to even nudge the engine over.
