for future reference, a 30 second search on any of the parts stores
websites will usually tell the tale. Better yet, go to the store and
compare both parts-- sometimes different part numbers will bolt up and
do the job just fine, or better. Alternators come to mind.

like one other person suggested... You could go to autozone or
advance's web site and look up a starter for each year vehicle and see
if they have the same part #, then you would have a fairly good
educated guess that they would work.
I know on some of the smaller 4*4 trucks changing the starter can
really be a pain in the @ss.
It is a good idea though.... I've done the same when looking at parts
on different year trucks or between a 1500 and 2500 series truck.
Appreciate all the input.I've been on autozone & advance auto
sites.Advance shows two different #s but states the 96 will work with a
guage??I believe the 96 starter is a smaller magnetic gear driven
type.But I don't understand about the guage,unless there's shims
involved.It also states it will work with a 168 tooth flexplate which my
4.3 has.The 96 s10 starter at advance states less current draw than the
one that is on there,and if it is smaller,it should run cooler.But I'm
still not real sure about the fit.They are expensive!I was gonna shop
around for a used spare.Thanks for the info.
why dont you just goto a junk yard and pay 30-40 bucks for a used starter
for your 88 4.3 and that way you've solved your problem completely, or maybe
take the starter from your 96 and trade with them.
I don't have a starter for a 96,I know where I might be able to purchase
one,for about $25 S&H.Once I get it,then I'll know for sure.It would be
a real good deal at this price,since a new one costs about $158.00.I
just wanted to know if any one here knew for sure if it would
