And to make things even more confusing my starter is two bolt but I see the mount has three threaded holes. Does a 2002 7.3l take a 2 bolt or 3 bolt starter ?

lhud is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.lhud is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.
Mine is a two bolt setup. It also has a third hole for a three bolt setup as well.
My starter did not have room for a third bolt.
I do not know the metric size of the bolts, but I think maybe the socket size was a minimum of 10 mm - really just guessing from memory.
Maybe someone else will clarify for you.
Try searching through some of the existing starter threads. I also remember someone having to replace the adapter plate that allows the starter to be bolted to the engine.

Good luck,

After searching and searching I have come to the conclusion that we can use both 2 or 3 bolt, Mitsubishi seems to be the only one making three bolts. The bolt sizes are M10 x 1.5 x 35mm grade 8.8. I'm going to clean the holes with some break cleaner and then try some loctite red on them and see how it goes.
