    Andy, check those ground cables. Clean the connectors at the starter, battery and engine just to be on the safe side.
    Clean them ALL and scrape the paint away from connections at the engine and/or plate.

    Sounds like a battery or corrisoin around one of the cables. Be sure to check where the ground, grounds to the block.

    Hot or cold? And what do you mean by three turns? Three engine revolutions?
    It's usually going to take longer to start cold versus hot.
