I've had a bad starter cause weird things before, including draining the battery and causing slow cranking starts. I'd spend some time checking the starter myself, maybe your new battery worked until the starter got hot and drained the battery.
Very true statement^^^^ I was also thinking that the pick up module in the distributor maybe shot, had that happen to a truck of mine.
Life's journey is not to arrive safely at the grave,but rather to slide in sideways,worn out,shouting what a fuck'n ride!!
