Starting problems

I have a starting problem on my big chevy. It used to start up right after it warmed up with no problem. but then one day i over advanced the timing and then it had a hard time starting. So i reset the timing and restarted the engine and ever since i over timed it things never was good as it used to be. I tried cleaning all connections and even the battery. Do u think my over advancing the timing affected something else i am not aware of. It turns over really slow. It used to start on 1 click after it warmed up now its like just dragging. What do u think it is..

It's likley the starter solinoid got overheated from the advanced timing,
replace it and I suspect things will be back to normal.
