As Bill mentioned, there's a high likelihood it's simply worn contacts. I had that problem with the starter in the 1HZ in my HZJ75. Replacing them was super-easy, R&Ring the starter itself was more work than replacing the contacts. The contacts themselves were free - Deon (no longer there) at Mountain States Toyota just gave me a pair of every Toyota starter solenoid contact he had. I found a pair that were close, a little grinding with the Dremmel and presto-voila they fit perfect.
