No. The synchro hub is worn and where one is worn so may the others be. Try a yard or small ads or ebay if you can't find a local specialist. The cost of genuine toy parts may make an exchange box a better bet.

For the best OEM Service Manual, purchase one from your local Toyota Dealership. They are not cheap, but cover your vehicle in the best detail. Autozone carries the DYI auto manuals for most imports. It all depends on what services you are going to perform on your vehicle.

The most common cause of a non-starting car is the battery. It is either weak, (low voltage) dead, (zero voltage) or has bad connections. (corroded or loose) I will assume you have a fully charged battery with good connections. (both to battery and starter relay)
If you remove the starter switch lead (small wire) from the starter relay and apply +12v from the battery to its respective prong or lead on the relay, and your starter cranks, your starter switch is faulty. (not to be confused with your key switch). If you jump the two large wires together on the relay and it cranks, then the relay is faulty. If you jump the two large wires together and nothing happens, then starter is faulty, or wires to starter are loose or broken. Picture of starter switch prong on the relay is pictured. NOTE: sparks are to be expected, so don't be too scared.

Have you checked fuel pressure before and after the first attempt to start ?
It could be low fuel pressure or a problem with the cold start injector if equipped.

there are two 10mm nuts securing the fuse box, remove those and then push the 80amp fuse downwards out of the fuse box (you'll see a clip to the side of the 80amp fuse) once you've slid it out from the bottom of the fuse box you'll see it the wire terminals bolted to the fuse. undo the 10mm nuts and remove. easy as!
