    Thanks for this write up, I'm going to change my starter out this weekend. Coppinger Cove has mine ruined and clicking when starting. Damn you water....

    Speak for yourself. Dunked mine back in April.... And it hated me for a good month after that. Fine now, I guess enough driving and vibrations and starts got enough mud out to let it work properly again lol

    The pictures i posted on how to orient it and drop it through the bottom are critical. It took me about 30 minutes of trying to figure that out.

    I'd wager that a lot of us only have one vehicle to drive and can't afford to have the truck down for a couple days while waiting on a rebuild. Plus you can get a core charge refund when you turn your old one in anyway.

    I doubt there is a core with an OEM unit at the dealer. Brushes are the main reason these things quit. Usually can fix it with a tear down lube and cleaning.
