broken starter mount....

ok new to the site but did a basic search and found nothing... so here goes...

My son tried to start the truck (01 f250 7.3l auto trans) and heard a thunk... got out and looked and found the starter hanging by the power cable... the mount that the starter bolts to broke in half on both sides... from the looks of it this ring goes all the way around the top of the transmission and half way down the drivers side... its about 1.5 inchs thick...

My question is is this a piece that can be replaced? or is it part of the transmission bell housing? I have not looked at this that close due to it was midnight when we got the truck home and only 10 degrees outside....
any help would be appreciated! specially a diagram or exploded view pic of the piece...

You are lucky, that broken piece is a separate plate between the engine and the transmission. Bad part is the trans has to come out to replace it.
You should not have too much trouble finding a good used one for cheap.

Du'oh I didn't open the picture to see that it was in one piece. Sounds reasonable price wise.

Anybody have any idea why this piece could have broken. Mine broke off the same way. I have already replaced it, but before I put the starter on I am trying to make sure this wont happen again, because this wasn't a very fun job. My starter was on with two bolts on the bottom, when it broke one bolt was holding the bracket in and the other was missing.

Part of my confusion is from the factory does my 01 have three bolts, or two in the starter? There seems to be mixed answers on the site about the number of bolts on these starters????

Stuff breaks. That's really the only logical reason. Yeah, if stuff is loose it can lead to torque breaks. If stuff is too tight it can lead to too much torsion. But in the end, sometimes stuff just breaks for no good reason. The cast batch had too much carbon mixed in... Easy enough and cheap enough fix though. Just be happy you were home and not on a trip when it happened. Push starting an auto is possible, but not easy, and not without another vehicle.
