Engine cranks no start ,but push starts

I have a 1986 Jeep Cherokee 2.8 V6 with HEI ignition. I have a weird problem. The Jeep randomly doesn't start and the tach shows to activity, however, it starts every time when I push/bump start it. I have talk to numerous people and been battling this for three months now. Usually when you push/bump start your car, when you have a battery/starter issues. I can crank the engine forever and the tachometer shows no activity. I physically see the engine turning over. Sometimes the engine will start randomly when I crank it. This has a CA emmissions and no crank or cam sensor. The coil is getting 12 volts when ignition is in the run position and 11.5 when cranking/start position. Any help?

could be your ignition switch closing the circuit in the start position instead of opening it ,but open in the the on position.

It was the ignition control module. Hope this helps with anyone with my same symptoms. It didn't competely go out, just randomly.
