Starter Reccomendations

Hey guys, been having some starter problems and after searching the forum ive found a few starters people seem to have had decent luck with, but my question is.


should i go with the high torque starter for 120$?

New Starter Ford 7.3 Dsl Powerstroke Truck High Torque | eBay


or get a factory one? i mean the factory one lasted a long time.


also, im on a budget so if anyone has a working starter laying in there parts pile and wants to sell it to get some quick cash, i would throw a used starter on. if not, ill probably just have to buy a new one.


thanks a ton guys

I would go with the napa one, that seems like a reasonable price. I just replace a starter on one of my dad's trucks and I belive it was pushing $300 at Ford for a reman one.
