I m no expert, but I recommend that you perform a voltage drop test on your wires. Google voltage drop testing for many instructions. It will help identify where you have a problem before replacing more components.

Hi Zack,
Quite a problem that you have there. If the tractor were mine I would now refit the existing cables and starter and battery. I don't think anyone has mentioned using a heavy jumper lead connected to the starter end of the earth battery cable and a good earth on the engine. Jumper clamps are quite a good fit around a bolt head such as one on the front axle casting to the sump (oil pan). Although unlikely it is possible that your problem is bad earthing within the starter. If there is no improvement try connecting the pole of the battery to the chassis via the jumper lead.
Again if there is no improvement hold the key in the 'start' position for a few seconds longer than you would normally do. Check closely the ends of the battery cables for any sign of heating at all. I had a Ford 5610 around two weeks ago with a similar problem to yours. In this case it turned out to be a bad connection between the inner nut on the starter earth bolt connection and the end-plate of the starter. There has to be a simple answer. Don't pull out any more hair, you might end up looking like me!!!!!!
