I heard the starter from a later model chevy truck will work but not sure about that. can someone help me with this issue.

What goes wrong w/the starter?

Be sure the starter gear is spaced correctly to the flywheel/flexplate ring gear.

More on starters and etc. here. More troubleshooting and how to install a remote solenoid is here.

Good luck.
