Not real sure, but is it a mini starter, or one of the old school big ones

I got mine out of a 5.7 2001 chevy van. Not sure the match up. I did this swap when my Silverado starter died. I would start by calling a starter shop and asking them if they can order you a mini starter. I found one new for 93 dollars. The guy told me just to buy a used one because they never go bad... You can match them up with your old starter bolts, you want to be able to see the cross hatch of the bolts when you put them in the new starter.

uhh, gotta trim the mount on one side some if you have 68600s and the purchased ones. Probably about 1/4 inch. Don't fret just grab a sawzall or grinder.
