After the 3rd turn of the motor the positive battery cable has already warmed up to where you can not hold it i cleaned all the grounds and replaced all ground wired because negative battery cable was getting hot.

Bad starter or solenoid.

The starter is either pulling too many amps, OR the battery cables are to small to handle the amperage going through them.

FPD might be onto something - is the cable from the solenoid to the starter getting just as hot or is it only the cable from the battery to the solenoid? Too small of wire can ultimately damage both the solenoid and starter motor form voltage drop.
