I tried to fire up my car today for the first time. It is a 347 with 10.5-11 CR. my factory starter is turning really slow with plenty of juice to it. Is the factory starter to weak for the higher compression or is it just bad? If it is bad, should I just go ahead and get high torque, or will factory be sufficient? An Exporer starter is higher torque correct?

Yea, I have double checked all of my connections. Everything is good. I think I will get a new stock, if there still a problem then it should be something other than the starter. From what I have found, the 95 came with a high torque mini. So a stock should be fine.

Are you positive you have good block and battery grounds?
This^. Try an az unit and if it does the same thing slide it back to them. Probably a bad connection somewhere. Try grounding it to cast iron rather than the timing cover.

I have it grounded to the block. I have a ground ran from the battery in the trunk to the frame. Then the motor is grounded from the front of the block to the frame.

Yep, just took the starter to the shop. They said they were surprised that it even turned at all. Also told me that those ford starters were strong as hell, that had plenty of torque for way more compression.
