GREAT GEAR DEDUCTION STARTER FOR THE MONEY. MADE THE MISTAKE OF PUTTING A DIRECT DRIVE STARTED ON MY CHEVY 350 IN JANUARY OF 2013. IT BEGAN TO DRAG AND MY ADVANCE AUTO PARTS STORE REFUNDED THE COST OF THE DIRECT DRIVE STARTER THAT WAS UNDER WARRANTY. ADVANCE AUTO PARTS STORES AND EMPLOYEES HAVE ALWAYS BEEN HELPFUL AND TAKEN CARE OF ALL MY AUTOMOTIVE PARTS NEEDS. I USE THE WEDSITE TO MAKE LOOK UP PARTS AND PAY FOR PARTS, WHICH ARE READY FOR PICKUP AT MY LOCAL STORES. ON LINE HELP WAS VERY HELPFUL WHEN I HAD QUESTIONS ABOUT APPLING THE WARRANTY STARTER TOWARDS MY NEW GEAR DEDUCTION STARTER. THANKS ADVANCE AUTO PARTS

                I was sent the wrong starter for my truck, that I bought online. But I must say, I took it to my local store and they were wonderful! I was taken care of in 10 minutes and haven't had a problem since.
                Should have just gone there in the first place!

                  I am ordering this starter and taking to friends in Haiti. What other accessory items should I order to make sure they have everything they need to install (mounting bolts, shims, ??)? Thanks.

                    gear reduction is smaller then direct drive. the starter motor is slightly larger then the solenoid. direct drive doubles as a boat anchor!
