yep, I did the same thing. however, MAKE ABSOUTELY SURE THE SNOUT OF THE STARTER is the same.
I spit a 2 bolt out of mine, decided to run a 3 bolt.
I slapped it in, and it worked great for a minute. then it started grinding.
there are 2 version of the 2 bolts and 1 version of the 3.
people here say they work, I don't know mabe I had bad luck.
but I just replaced the 3 bolt with a 2 bolt and the snouts are very different.

yeah i'll be sure to do a 3d facial recognition, reverse osmosis, converging bilateral comparison of them two ****s before i put the new one in. i'm hoping this solves a long nagging issue of no crank issues...
