Description

You can rely on the XDP Wrinkle Black HD Gear Reduction Starter XD253 to get your 1994-2003 Ford 7.3L Powerstroke running in the most extreme environments. XDP's HD Gear Reduction Starters are faster, stronger, and more durable than your factory starter. This gives you the ability to turn over even the most aggressive diesel engines. 

XDP's HD Gear Reduction Starters feature a smaller motor that is faster, more efficient, and draws less amperage. The Gear Reduction Design produces more torque than a factory unit, at about a third of the size. This not only reduces weight, but also makes a more compact design for easier installation. Each starter comes pre-tested, ready for installation and features a durable "Wrinkle Black" finish for corrosion resistance and aesthetics. Includes adapter plate and mounting bolts.

Features: 
  • HD Gear Reduction Design
  • Wrinkle Black Finish 
  • Increased Durability 
  • Made In The USA! 
  • 1-Year Warranty 
Tech Notes: 
Depending on the conditions, a starter can pull up to 500 amps. These levels of amperage stress ALL components in the circuit including cables, terminals, batteries, and more. Problems with these components can be difficult to diagnose as they appear fine at rest and under a light load, but generate high resistance under heavy amperage draws. This results in low voltage to the starter while cranking, causing heavier amperage draw, and increased heat leading to starter failure. Batteries, cables and additional components should be checked and serviced regularly. Voltage measured at the starter during cranking should always be above 9.5V DC. Starter heat shields are not required, but are an excellent idea for heat protection.

Warranty Info:
Products manufactured by XDP carry a 1-Year warranty against defects in materials and craftsmanship. The Warranty is Limited to one (1) year from the date of sale and limited solely to the parts contained within the product's kit. Click Here for full warranty policy.

Can't beat it

You can't beat this starter The price is amazing for what it actually is my truck starts so much easier with this starter that was also nice that they sent a dyno of the test results of the starter and it looks amazing and as other people have said the top bolt is very hard to get to but if you have a 15 mm short wrench it's not bad
amazing starter

Had this starter for around 2 months or so now.. Went from around a 3-4 second crank to 2 seconds tops. Absolutely happy with this starter. Fyi 15mm swivel socket will be your friend for that top bolt...

Answer
Yes! Our XDP Wrinkle Black HD Gear Reduction Starter XD253 is designed to work on all 1994-2003 Ford 7.3L Powerstrokes regardless if they came equipped with the factory two bolt, or three bolt starter. For trucks equipped with the factory two bolt starter you will simply install the new starter using only two bolts instead of the three.
