Watch the bolt length!

By 

from toledo, oh

Comments about CARQUEST Starter - Remanufactured:

The product image shows a long bolt/short bolt configuration. This product, however, uses two equal size bolts. It is indicated in the text but the pic is wrong. If you need the other configuration, order 6488S. 6488S wasn't listed for 1999 Silverado with a 5.3.

      Comments about CARQUEST Starter - Remanufactured:

      Lasted 2 months, and the soldered connection from the starter to solenoid came apart. Pain in the neck removing to bring back or fix - might as well bring it back since it's out. Amazing how something so simple can be botched.
