I was reading around on another forum and there was a guy saying that this starter is good
100% NEW FORD 7.3L DIESEL STARTER POWERSTROKE HD 7.3 17578 SMT0024: SMT0024 / 17578-New DB Electrical Starter-Alternator

I am just going off what he told me when I asked him about it...

Just a basic 01 F350 CCLB SRW -Good from a far but far from good

DB makes the best Starters and Alternators you will find. I heard they were selling on Ebay now. Stay away from the Auto Zone, Advance etc.... lifetime warranty junk!! They use the cheapest parts they can find!! Very strange, the link Tubular linked to above shows the starter being for a 94-00 PSD, I wasn't aware there was a change in the starter from early 99 to late 99. You better call them. I know they make them for the 99-03 trucks.

I went with a Powermaster gear reduction one through Summit Racing and it works great much better than the stocker

I have an Oriely's life time warranty starter. I have no problems with it.

The 99-01 PSd can replace that big slow heavy 3 mounting bolt starter with the newer High torque starter for a 2002-03 7.3L psd.

The high torque one uses only two of the three bolt holes.

The one from Oriely's is made by Bosch.

Is the one from Oreilly's a new starter? Usually the Lifetime warranty units are rebuilds, and they use the cheapest parts they can in them, so it may have been a Bosch originally, but all you have now is a Bosch case. If they are new Bosch starters with a lifetime warranty how much are they?
That's good to know about the difference in starters I wasn't aware of that, still doesn't explain why they stop at 2000 though.

Bottom line is you can't beat DB for either Alt or starters!!

Came in a Bosch box, cost was around 219.00. With life time warranty.

I found out about the different starters back when my first starter went out. I had like 100,000 miles on the truck. It came with the two bolt high torque one. How ever the bell housing has the third hole.

The bendixgear was the same tooth count and diameter. So I figured I would take the gamble. Bought the three bolt heavy starter. Went to the hardware store with one of the starter bolts. Bought one grade 8 bolt that was the same thread and size as the starter bolt. Went home and installed the three bolt starter. It worked for about 75,000 miles. Then when that starter went bad they had the two bolt high torque one in stock finally. But they would not swap them out for warranty. The three bolt I had was lifetime reman.

But they did accept the three bolt for my core return.

It is good to know that both starters will work. Because if your truck goes down and you need a starter. But can only get the three bolt starter. You now know it will work. Just have to get the third starter bolt.
