    make sure it's the new style starter like this one with the 2 long bolts:


    and not the old style with the 1 long 1 short bolt



    supposed to offer better protection against breaking the mounting ear off the block

    If you can afford it buy a new starter not a remanufactured unit. You will save money in the long run.
