No start condition

Able to start by pushing and popping the clutch, so took it to Auto Zone and Orileys. Battery and alternator checked out both places... Wouldn't start when turning the key at stop one, but fired right up at the second stop... So the problem is intermittent. Feels like it might be a poor connection. Any ideas? I know it could be a lot of different causes, but thought I would throw it out here for advice.

Dead spot in the starter windings is possible. Next time it won't start, have someone turn the key while you tap the starter with a hammer.

Good call, I forgot about that little gem of a trick! Trying to ensure we know the problem before throwing parts at it.
