big update i finally got time to take things off and look at them, the alternator is bad and starter and i found that the big wire from the battery to the starter rubbed a hole in the cover and grounded out by the oil pan so i think that was the cause. so replacing the alternator i was thinking since i have emergency lights and a few more then most lights, would i be able to put a bigger on that puts out more amps or would that just mess things up? my truck does not have ambulance package.

Hey DD6154

Check out DB ELECTRICAL

I think this starter will work for your 7.3-nt-idi not 100% sure if is this one for you but, go to their website and enter your vehicle info to be sure.

DB Electrical.com

https://www.dbelectrical.com/product...4-hi-tork.html

Item Description 7.3L Ford Diesel Gear Reduction Starter 85-94 Model years
Part number - SND0027
STARTER NOT OEM
$94.28Total *Free Shipping
Db electrical
Customer Service # 1-800-753-2242

Its a Nippo clone but as aGR starter its a decent design and better starting than stock.

NOTE:
They also have ALTERNATORS for your vehicle and may have the 3G higher capacity (if your looking to do the conversion and go serpentine belt )

They also have v-belt alternators that would go on your 1990 if your seeking now. They can be had at a good price and they have a fair return 1-year no questions warranty.

I used the GR starter above and have nothing bad to say and they shipped it and I recieved it in 24 hours with no upcharge for receiving it that quickly.

Hope this helps you.

And, just for the record, no I dont work for them or have any interest with them, just used their product.

YMMV

Btw, if ya need glow plug harness or push button glow plug complete new wiring harness and update to stancor/white rodgers contactor conversion, PM me and I'll give ya a great recommendation on doing that.

Good luck DD ... hope things work out.

Using a reputable local rebuilder for your starter or alternator will give you the best quality, and is probably your best option but these shops are getting harder to find, as the few old, established and good guys that have the experience at least, in my area, have retired, or passed. Or new, from Oreillys or Napa, AZone, even if the parts are from asia, they can last a good while. Good luck with your fix.
