Help! Need size of starter bolt/ Broke down

Hey guys,

I have a company truck (2002 F-350/7.3 W/Auto)that is broke down on a job site because the lower starter bolt is missing and the starter gear will not engage. Anyone know what the length/diameter/thread pitch of that bolt is. I have a fastener shop just a block away, I just need to know the size. I can run it out to him in just a few minutes. The local dealer is out of stock and can't tell me the dimensions of the bolt.

Much thanks,

Tom

Re: Help! Need size of starter bolt/ Broke down

On my truck it looks like the top and bottom bolt are different sizes. I need the size of the lower one.

Thanks,

Tom

measure the thickness of the starter flange and the thickness of the "ear" the bolt screws into...just don't buy one longer than the combined thickness. Not talking about rocket science here.

Re: Help! Need size of starter bolt/ Broke down

That won't really help me with the thread pitch though will it?. Thanks anyway, I am just gonna pull my bottom bolt (on my truck)and go match it up with the fastener shop. I am trying to do this over the phone with the truck 25 minutes away and it is just not working.

Re: Help! Need size of starter bolt/ Broke down

Probably only two choices on thread, "coarse or fine", buy one of each.
