The replacement starter was ordered and *should* (crosses applicable appendages) be arriving tomorrow.
$189.18 total, including core charge.
What's funny is when I was looking at parts online yesterday, at the same site, the exact same part with core charge ended up be bing close to $250.00
Now I just wonder if there is a place that will buy the old starter for 75-80.00 like if I bought the part at Napa and took the bad starter in to them. . .
