7.3l starter

Post  jasonf on March 1st 2015, 1:00 pm

The starter in my 03 7.3 is starting to make some funny noises. Any suggestions on a good replacement? I was looking at DB but the list of complaints seems to keep growing when you search the ol interweb.

Hahahaha Dave you crack me up. I made this post then 20 minutes later I had no start. It looks like it would have been a cheap missing bolt fix that is now going to require a new starter. Bummer...

I've bought Delco-Remy stuff lately for my big truck and it seems to be really good quality. Brand new, no core. Looks like you won't be getting a core for that one anyway lol!!

The Ford stuff or whoever makes it for Ford seems to work well.

I think MITSUBISHI made the original ones from all the posts I read today. The Denso units seem to be top notch. All the chinese ones seem to be great for 1 week to 1 year. lol

I was dreading it till I got under there. I have never owned a vehicle that was so easy to change the starter on.

I ended up taking it to a local starter place. They had some old cores laying around and changed my broken piece out and put in new brushes etc. It will hopefully last longer than the china option.
