    I know this technically should be in the wanted section, but I figure that the diesel crowd would see it bettter here.
    I need the nose piece off of a 6.2 starter, mine cracked right after I rebuilt it, so the starter isn't worth tossing, plus they are so friggin expensive!
    Thanks

    Which starter would that be for? The regular one or the gear reduction starter?

    I rebuilt a gear reduction unit when I first did my swap. Also had a regular starter, but it was complete junk (and got chucked out...sorry)

    The starter I rebuilt worked OK for about 6 months then started to not crank so great. I finally broke down and bought a Bosch reman and it's been awesome. Not cheap, but it sure does crank!

    I've got an extra 6.2L starter but it's going to be needed in a month or two when I convert another truck to Diesel... Though I've been very interested in going with the gear reduction starter if it ends up testing bad for some reason.
