RE: Starter

Not a bad idea Ron. With two group 31 batteries in the truck- there is a lot of energy to damage electrical wiring and components. The quicker the better!

Auto parts stores sell them.* Or you could use a marine one.

This is also a way to slow down a thief who might try to hotwire your vehicle.* He's going to think the battery is dead and probably move on.

I finally had the opportunity to try out the rebuilt starter. Ahhhh. $145 well spent.
