    Do you have a multimeter? What voltage are you getting at the starter?

    Is the battery of the correct ampage?

    Sounds like a faulty starter motor, or possible high resistance in the starter motor wiring ( damaged wires)

    That's my thinking.

    Thinking more dodgy solenoid with it eventually starting

    You need to check that the battery u are using is the correct amperage, ie powerful enough to start the car. just because you take a battery from another does not mean it will be the correct amperage to start the car
