Your starting problem definitely sounds like the copper solenoid strap on
the starter motor is corroded.

The two times I've come across type 44 wipers blowing fuses, it was due
to incorrectly routed wires.  If the wiper mechanism is installed under
the wires it will rub on them enough to eat away the insulation and blow
the fuse.
