Hi,starter motor is simuler on all cars.
what you have to do is first discanect the battery earth then live,
then jack the car up and put it on axlestands,
then if you crawl underneath the car on the near side(pavement side)and take the wires off with the spade connectors,
then undo the nut that holds the live cable from the battery and then remove cable,
then there are two or free bolts that hold the starter motor onto the belhouseing,undo those bolts take starter motor off and replace with new one,
to reassemble is in reverse,all the best.

Will crank if pushed off, but not with switch on a 1988 toyota pickup, with 22r carb.

Sounds like a bad starter motor or a faulty / intermittent Earth connection.

First check all the battery power and earth leads where they connect to the Battery Terminals, Engine, Starter Motor and Body. If possible disconnect, clean thoroughly by removing any corrosion or paint, with a wire brush or coarse sond paper, that could cause a poor connection, and reconnect making sure all are tight.
Try tapping the starter with a hammer or tyre lever while the starter is operated. If it works then it means that the brushes in the starter are worn out or the solenoid is not making proper contact to switch the high current required. Auto electricians will usually have exchange units available for replacement.

firstly locate the starter motor; if you don't know what it looks like follow the positive battery lead from the battery to where it is connected,that is the starter motor,you may be able to remove it from the top or from under the vehicle,firstly disconnect the battery lead from the battery then from the starter motor plus the other small lead from the solenoid on the starter,you will see two or three bolts that hold the starter motor in, remove them & the starter motor will pull straight out to replace it opposite to how you took it out....hope this helps....cheers
