check all the main power and earth wires it may be a bad earth connection between body/battery and engine.

Check the battery connections, could be loose...

Also give the starter a whack with a hammer, could be sticking...

Hi all ,just an update ,checked the wiring and found good supply direct from battery ,checked supply from key switch to solenoid ok. removed starter and fitted new unit. happy days she started first time ,just a note that the 12v to sol only operates the pinion with the 12v to motor the motor kicks in, but with 12v to motor only nothing happens so I deduced that there must be an internal switch that makes sure the pinion is in position before the motor cranks the engine, is this why its called a pre engaged starter motor?
