Will a NA 3.8 Starter work on an SC?

A friend of mine has a 1992 SC and needs a starter. He has access to a starter for a 3.8 N/A for like $10 that he wants to use to hold off on getting a new one for a little longer.

I don't really think a used starter is something I'd want to fool with but for his sake, will these starters interchange? Things to note are that he has a 3.8 SC with a 5-speed and the starter will undoubtedly be coming from an automatic 3.8 N/A. The years will be relatively the same. Within a few at least.

Will it work?

I could only find one part # at NAPA. THey might be interchangable.

I believe they are. They are identical in looks, the starter with the built in relay (that I always hated). They are also on the 5.0's
