I saw somewhere i think in lmc truck's catalog that the 2.8l and 4.3l use the same starter I have a 2.8l one here that is practically brand new and one outta my jimmy that is getting weak will they fit or are they to different i see a few little things but i'm not sure if they will still work.

bolt pattern same?

both engines use same size flexplate?

if so then it should work if you can connect the wires etc


all depends on the above things

i wouldnt think they would interchange but im not sure

id like to know how it goes

all the 2.8 and 3.1 and such starter noses ive ever seen are straight across bolt pattern, unlike 4.3 and most v-8
