hell yeah. i remember when i had my old 88 Mustang GT, i had to replace the damn starter 4 times because the one they were selling me wasn't OEM and kept screwing me over. It got so bad that the starter knocked out most of the flywheel's teeth, so eventually the flywheel got so screwed that the starter would just spin freely. Had to drop the transmission twice to change the flywheel ring twice
