I'd go with a junkyard original acdelco(I'm assuming thats original) 6.5 starter. I've read dozens and dozens of posts here from people who have bought ebay or remanufactured starters that have "lifetime" warranties. Some replace them 4 times a year. My time is worth money and unless the warranty is removing and reinstalling the starter the warranty isn't worth much. Junkyard parts are way cheaper than reman and in my experience good quality as good or better than reman

Or, you could follow Dave's example and get yours rebuilt by a local automotive electrical shop. It'll probably cost you less than a new unit, and the quality will be much better than a 10-year-old in Indonesia following English instructions on how to rebuild a starter.

Trios is right.

Support your local businesses. There has to be an auto electric shop near you somewheres. GO to them and have them rebuild your starter. They'll stand behind their work alot better than the companies that sell their remans that are made by the lowest bidder.

Some local businesses are better than others. ask around before getting the work done. I was going to get my starter rebuilt by a local guy. Wasn't going to be real cheap so I was hemming and hawing so I asked around a bit and got some real bad feedback about the guy. Definitley not saying all are bad (few are)just don't assume that because it's a local guy that he's any good.

Don't worry about it going to my head; I knew it was the truth anyway. You just summed up my life so nicely I couldn't help but put it in my sig.

Full of himself.

That wasn't hard. Maybe if you said we had to say it in French, or something, but I could do that too.

Because I'm that awesome.
