      Comments about CARQUEST Starter - Remanufactured:

      this starter works for a cold start but if you drive down the road to a gas station, do not expect the vehicle to start again until the engine cools 10-15 minutes later. starter drags and you will think you have a dead battery. it cannot take any heat whatsoever, even with a heat shield installed. used on a 74 ford FE 390

          Comments about CARQUEST Starter - Remanufactured:

          Bolt holes didn't have threads in the right places. There were three bolt holes instead of 2. Didn't give a torque, and was too low. The MAIN issues was the bolt hole SNAPPED off of the starter when I tried to put it into the car, and the metal is very very poor grade. When I looked at the snapped off piece you could rub the "metal" (now I'm thinking it's some sort of rock), off. Don't buy this

          Purchased for an old Falcon. Easy to install, but it did not work. Disappointing. Will try one more time. I hate having to do that.

          I will eat the core fee and rebuild the original myself for a spare.

          The store folks are the best, always working hard to get it right the first time. Wish the vendors did the same.

            looks new but is an exact match to the bad starter i took out even the 'not working' part, highly disappointed and to make matters worse store hours online are not the actual hours of my local store, should have just waited and went to my normal store
