Check voltage drops across the cables/connections. They may look good, but be bad. To me it sounds like a bad starter.

Re: Sitting engine - ATF?

If there is sludge, you’ll probably want to pull the valve chamber cover and clean as well. If you do, MAKE SURE you plug the main bearings and cam feeder holes so crud,ect doesn’t go down them.

Re: Modern Ignition System Problem

How long has this ignition been installed, and working? I would be looking for bad corroded connections, and ground path continuity.

If your not going to drive consistently, go mechanical. They don’t need the maintenance juice does after sitting.
