At the back of the ignition barrel ,one wire will always be live and as you turn the key the others will power up but the one that goes to the starter will power uo momentarily and that will be at the final stage of your turn.pick power up from the accessory wire and hook it up to a spring switch and jump that to the starter wire.

Hello csc.
Seen this issue in the past.
It could be a voltage/current issue from the ignition switch.
To check this you need to verify that the circuit is capable to carry enough energy to activate the solenoid.
It may only have enough energy to make it initially click but not enough to keep it engaged.
And because it is intermittent it makes it difficult to check.
I had a 1985 Camry with the same problem.
I ended up running another wire with a start button to the solenoid.
The next time it happened to me I used the start button I had wired in.
I ended up replacing the ignition switch.
It solved my problem.
I hope my experience helps you fix yours.

How do I replace a starter on a 1985 Toyota PU 4x4? 22R engine Thanks -- Bob R

In order, disconnect negative battery cable, jack up truck and secure it from tipping, access starter from underneath or remove tire and get at it from the wheel well on passenger side, unplug clip and disconnect positive battery cable from starter, remove two bolts that hold it in place. Reverse to install new.

1985 toyota extracab 22r-e cranks but won't start

as long as your volt meter is capable of measuring OHMS you can test wires, find the main power wire to the fuel pump and measure for voltage when you turn the key on(3-4 sec) if power is present at the fuel pump, and the pump don't run, then replace it
