Check out and clean every negative/ black connection from the battery to the starter. Check that the terminal ends are still connected to clean wiring along the wires. Sounds to me like an earth fault, a corroded terminal or connection will pass a voltage but not handle the high current that the starter demands.

Glad you are sorted, it could only have been a corroded/poor connection with the symptoms you described.

Do yourself a big favour now and get a tub of vasseline and pop it in a pan of water until it is liquid. Dip each one of your crimps in it and about 6mm up the insulation. I will seep into the crimps and strands of wire and stop the corrosion in the future.
