    Welcome to TW. I don't have a 1st gen, but it sounds like the solenoid.

    Does the starter try to turn the engine over as soon as you reconnect the battery without using the ignition switch? If so it could be a bad relay.

    Your contacts are bad! They wear and get stuck open. Search some of the Toyota 4X4 sites for a tech write-up. Mine did the same thing. These trucks are prone to do it. I bought the cheap new contacts (maybe 6 bucks?) but I could switch them out the starter stuck open one day and burnt up before I could disconnect the battery. I had to buy a new starter.
