Clicks, then starts...

1989 6 cylinder, oem carb.
Canít figure it out.
Usually itíll click (a loud click) and then after I reset the ignition it starts right up. Happens about once every 15-20 starts.
Today it clicked 5 times then started up.
Connections had a little green on them but nothing too bad. I cleaned them.
Any ideas?

Starter solenoid is on the way out. Would replace it now before you get stranded.

May also be the connections on the solenoid and depending on how old your battery is you may want to get it bench tested.
