Comments about CARQUEST Starter - New:

I am happy with the product. It was an exact fit. Everything seems well built. It's only been in a couple days. I hope for a long lasting part. It was a good deal with the discount code to make the price somewhat comparable to other online options. Sometimes purchasing at a local store is better than on other online options. You have easy access to warranty options. No waiting for a warranty return authorization, then sending it back on your dime. Then waiting for them to repair it and send it back to you.

      I'm guessing my old starter has been degrading over time as this new starter turns over this massive 7.3 diesel twice as fast. The starter is only a week old so I can not speak to it's durability. So far so good. $50 online coupon made it worth it.

          Comments about CARQUEST Starter - New:

          This is being sold as the two bolt, gear reduction, starter for the Ford 7.3 Powerstroke Diesel. What comes in the box is the older style 3 bolt straight barrel starter. There are instructions to use the supplied (but missing from my box) spare bolt.

          While it may fit the mounting holes, it is much longer than the original and may have clearance issues at the crossmember. The solenoid is in a different position and you may have trouble getting the battery cable to reach.

          Again, this is NOT the improved two bolt gear reduction starter in the box. The other review that describes it as bait and switch is right on.

              This is being sold as the TWO BOLT starter for the Ford 7.3. The box contains the older THREE BOLT version with instructions to use one additional bolt when installing it. The extra bolt was supposed to be included but was NOT in the box.

              I didn't take it home to see if it would physically fit on my 2002, there may be issues with crossmember clearance. Also the solenoid is in a different position so there may be problems with wire harness length.

              Now for the real burn, I purchased this online with a nice web only discount. I had to cancel the web purchase and then purchase the right part without any discount given in the store. Advance, you suck!

                Starter was for a 7.3 liter diesel. It was gear reduction starter. When I picked it up the company had substituted a strait barrel starter with a diferent hole pattern and an explanation saying that some modification may be required. I don't think so.

                      A:

                      Hi Baker, great question! This starter comes with limited life time replacement warranty. This warranty is valid for 90 days from the date of purchase or any longer warranty period that may be printed on your original sales receipt. In addition, you must be the original purchaser of the part and still own the vehicle on which it was installed. This warranty cannot be transferred to anyone at any time. Replacement parts are warranted for 90 days from the date of exchange or the remainder of the warranty period, whichever is longer. Warranty periods may vary from part to part.
