I did wiggle the cables as best I could in the rain, after a few drinks and
in no light.

I'll give it a good look.  Where is the 'engine ground strap' located?

'70 MGB

Have you checked the ground strap?  Clean the battery contacts, check the
battery-to-body connection, then check the engine ground strap.  Look for
split cables, corrosion, or bad connections at the terminals.

BTDT, 70 B
