    1994 2050 Capri 4.3L starter-gctid821026

    I have a 1994 Capri 2050 4.3L/Weber 4bbl that the starter has gone bad on. Vendors list starters with a 3 1/4" and 2 7/8" end cap model- is there any way to tell the difference without pulling the starter? Also part # 50-863007A1 seems to replace both...will this starter work in either case?

    Thanks, Gerry

    Welcome Aboard !

    You can't get the numbers off the starter ?

    What i would do.

    1- Disconnect the battery .

    2- Yank the starter.

    3- Read the numbers off the starter.

    4- Look on ebay for www.dbelectrical.com/ or just click on the link i provided.

    5- Order starter .

    6- Install starter .

    7- Go boating.
    Be good, be happy, for tomorrow is promised to no man !

      Thanks!

      This is the first I/O for me and I have another question...the current starter is the original one- how prone are these bolts to breakage on removal? I have changed numerous starters on vehicles in the past and never had an issue. Any suggestions before I dive in is more than welcome!

      Edit: I just loosened the bolts no problem, waiting for another set of hands now.

            Mission accomplished!

            She turns over great now and the install took about 1/2 hr. I used a new Mercruiser 50-863007A1 as the replacement starter and I also used new bolts.
