The main power wire stud broke off during installation. I took it back and they gave me a remanufactured one.

      Comments about CARQUEST Starter - New:

      I purchased this starter after my failed. The store had in stock and the part matched perfectly. Removal of the original and installation of the new part was not complicated. It does take a little patients but it will go in. A total of 2 bolts and 2 electrical connections is all that was required to complete the swap. The truck started right up and has been working perfectly ever since. It appears to have plenty of power and is considerably quieter that the original starter. The weight and dimensions were identical to the original equipment.

                    My GMC 3500 van had a faulty starter for years and years It was impossible for me to diagnose because the problem was intermittent. If you turn the key and the engine doesn't turn-over you need a new starter.

                    Excellent fit, original equipment manufacturer. Starter motor was slightly smaller than original enabling an easier installation. I do not notice any difference in performance.
