I have a 1989 7.3 idi and the starter has gone out on it. Sometimes its starts right up and sometimes it just clicks. Is there an aftermarket starter that I can get that will turn over faster than the stock one? Starts great in summer but this past winter it had to turn and turn to get it started and would like something with some more power to it. Thanks for any info in advance.
I had one that would drag. It gave me fits for months because folks here kept saying my starting problem was air intrusion. I think the gear reduction Mitsubishi is the replacement for these trucks. Word to the wise, bring your old started to the store. They will give you the wrong one about half the time.
