Exclamation 7.3L Starter

Searched the threads, but could not find info on starter.

I need to replace it, but it looks like there is a two bolt and a three bolt configurations. Without looking at it (since the truck is broken down several miles from here) is there a cutoff on when they went to 2 bolt?

I have a 2002 7.3L SRW Crew Cab 4WD, auto trans with A/C... I THINK that's a two bolt.

Any thoughts?

It doesn't matter if you get a PLGR starter ( Mitsubishi) or OFSR (denso) just make sure you get the high torque version of what you want.

Thanks all. It turned out to be a two bolt. While I'm all about getting the best parts I can afford, I'm more about getting the truck back on the road ASAP. Local parts store had a starter in stock, and now my truck runs vs sitting in a parking lot. I appreciate the tips though snd your time to respond. Cheers!
