    finally got motvated to get outside in this cold weather and drop my starter so icould have it tested. took it to autozone and it failed. so that means i need a new one.

    i eventually want to get the bosch gear reduction starter that rene has... but untill i have the money will a starter from a 83 6.2 K30 work?

    thanks

    The only difference (To my knowledge) is depending on the size of the flexplate. GM had 2 different starters one for a small flexplate and one for the large Manual trannys usualy had the large flywheel. But it should work if they are both diesels.
