check main cable between starter and block.

i had the same sort of thing going on with my 85 gtv6. over 3 year period changed ignition switch, fuse box, wiring, push started car for a while and assorted other things. wasn't till i pulled the motor to repaint that i noticed burn marks on the cable which was shorting out against the block periodically. thought the car was lucifer reincarnated. things i experienced...

-inconsistent engagement of starter
-no solenoid engagement
-fuse box smoking with key in crank position
-fuse box on fire with key out of ignition
-starter engaging while walking in house with key in hand
