Would the 2000 Ford Ranger 4.0 Starter Be The Same For The Auto As Manual?

I'm wondering if there are obvious visual differences between a starter for an auto trans, and one for a manual.
I remember hearing years ago that they are not interchangeable. Is it that they mount on opposite sides of the bell housing? Or do they fit into a different shaped opening?
I just got a new starter replacement bought on Hexautoparts.com for my 2000 ford ranger 4.0L and it looks the same as my old one as far as I can see, but just thought I would ask and be sure before I bolt it up.It would not surprise me for them to send the wrong one...

Welcome from another Michigander, I am just north of you Marlette/Kingston area.
To answer your question, yes they are different from manual to auto trans. To find this kind of info I usually use Rock Auto.
