Is that a starter from a 5.3 or a 6.0?
I'm assuming it is the factory LQ4 starter as it says AC Delco on it. Since my buddy had the truck the starter always sounded really slow and I assumed any crank was it's last. After tuning for an hour and probably stopping and starting it 10 times within that time it finally died.
I think 5.3 and 6.0 starters look the same, but sound pretty different. But if yours came off a LQ4, it should be the correct one. Maybe you did over work it, lol.
I’m pretty sure my 02 starter is original and I keep wondering how long it will last. Every time I look at replacing it I see it’s over $200 for a reman OE and move on. It might last forever who knows.
That's impressive Mexico made some good parts back then. I think the wiring going to the starter might be old or burnt because anytime the truck is hot the starter is slow even the new one which is much better but is noticeably slower when hot compared to cold. There's a little heat shield, the headers are ceramic coated and the wires have heat wrap so I think the wires might be damaged underneath the wrap. Other than this one I've never killed an LS starter either.
Yeah if it’s not getting enough current due to bad wiring that will definitely shorten it’s life.
Over the weekend, I made it easier for my dog Jadis to get in & out. I split the bench seat and made her a platform. Dog-tested, dog-approved!
That’s awesome! My Husky loves the big back area to hang out in.
X2! Very cool!!
I never see anything with an LS come through the shop needing a starter and the only one I killed had 300k on it. The starter part was fine it was in the solenoid cause it would just click sometimes
