Does the engine turn over when it doesn't start? It could be no spark or no fuel. Try some starting fluid to find out which one. -- Does it just click? Just a click is low voltage. Clean the battery connections and check the voltage.

I'd take a look at the other end of the black cable, the one that bolts to the chassis (all rusty by now_ and cable to the motor block~
