Starting problems

I have a 93 Chevy w/t truck. 4.3 v-6 auto 70K. When attempting to start the engine. I turn the key and sometimes I get a click. Sometimes it starts. If it doesnt start right away, I must turn the key 4 -5 times before it will start, Today I changed the positve
cable leading from the battery to the starter soleinoid, cleaned off grounding area for starter against the engine block. I also pulled the starter and had it checked by auto store. It checked OK. Put it all together and no change. Sometimes it will start 3-6 times in a row ,some times not at all. Only after 4 times trying it will kick over. The starter is not new , but tested good. Dont know where to go next. Ignition switch ??

Check the ignition switch down on the collumn. it may be worn out but may just need adjustment. I have had to adjust several GMs, they seem to have a habit of coming loose...

You generally just loosen the nuts holding it on & slide it up or down the collumn. you use very slight movements when sliding & usually slide it up. Its trial & error. Move it slightly & turn the key to check possition.

Check autolibrary.org to see if they have the adjustment and test specs.
