    Should be almost identical to the 2nd gen... It's the same Denso gear reduction starter used in thousands of applications.

    Just added toolbox and roof-rack to haul my fishing boat 100's of miles into the backwoods every week. Goodrich K02s, Bilstein 5100 front and back, no lift.
    Thats for sure. I changed the started on my old 65 Pontiac Parisienne, my 1970 Firebird Formula 400, and my 86 Ford F150. All very simple, all simple access. A matter of minutes and done.

    How did you get the steering shaft back in? I can’t seem to get mine to slide back down into place

    wiggle the steering wheel. You have to put the key and make it limber.

    On the 2nd gen you do not have to disconnect the steering shaft. My screws were removed, but I could not slide mine out of the way easily.
