Default slow cranking, 93 KA24E

My 93 (KA, 5 speed) starts fine the first time, but if I stop and say run into a store and than go to start it, it will crank real slow and the volt gauge will go down to about 8 volts.

Battery is fairly new and over sized, alternator is putting out very close to 14 volts when no accessories are on, belt is tight, checked and tightened it today.

I replaced the connection at the positive battery terminal that goes to the starter, and the terminals are new and clean and tight.

Haven't looked at the starter end of the cable yet.

Any other things I should check?

Thanks
