Q: Starter wont work every once in a while on 1990 Toyota Celica

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
My car is actually an 87 celica gts
Every once in a while, My starter decides its not going to work. For instance today it decided not to work for about 1.5 hours, then on the last try it worked. What happens is all power in the car is fine. Lights are bright and I even got the batter checked. When I turn the key the dashboard lights dim a little, and after a click nothing happens. But it always seems to decide to work a few hours or a few days later.... Any one have any clue what is going on>?

Its quite common for the two starter solenoid contacts and plunger to become pitted and fail (intermittently) in these Nippon Denso starters. The starter needs to be removed to repair.
