Gonna start a 6.2 that's been setting for awhile but the starters gone. My question I a 350 V8 starter the same?

Nope--they look similar ,but the 6.2 has a much longer and bigger diameter starter than the gas engines do...the solenoid "might" be interchangeable,but the starter drive is not the same as a gas version either...

A junkyard is probably the best place to buy one cheap,a rebuilt one will cost at least 100 bucks...I had to buy a starter drive for my trucks 6.2 and no one had one in stock,and they wanted 70+ bucks,a NAPA store found me a rebuilt drive for 35,had to wait a day to get it...

Be aware the starter needs a brace that bolts to the block and the starter case,if its left off,the result is busted off bolts that mount the starter---many 6.2's blocks get ruined when the bolts break,and a chunk of the block busts off,and its usually not fixable ...a dealer can supply the brace,its not that costly..
