It may be worth checking the Earth straps on the engine & battery are tight and the contacts at the starter are clean and tight too.
No clicking noise as such. When it doesnt start its just silence. The lights on the dash all come on as if about to start - but then nothing. Not even a click. Thats when i bump it and it starts immediately.

Will check the earth straps. The battery terminals are v tight. Will check starter contacts. Thank you for this advice.

PS do you think replacing the TDC with a new one may help?
