Go to Google Groups, and in the search box enter "starter teeth"
(without the quotation marks).
Seems there was an issue with the way the starter meshes with the
flywheel teeth.
Unfortunately the solution is costly.
Make sure you're using a starter from Toyota also.
An after market rebuild could be your problem.
I once replaced three starters under a "lifetime warranty" until I
told them to take it back and purchased a starter from the Toyota
dealer. Problem solved.
But do check the straight cut vs. beveled teeth issue also.

Narrow down the search with: beveled starter teeth

Example: Philip was always cantankerous in the
morning, given to snapping and snarling until he'd
had his first cup of coffee and a soothing hot shower.
