2001 4.3L V6 Starter solenoid on 1999 Chevrolet 1500 Pickup

I beleive I have a problem with the solenoid on my starter in my 2001 Chev pickup. It has a 4.3L V6 engine and I have been told by at least one supplier that the solenoid for this starter is not available separately. I have also looked extensively on the internet and do not find anyone who seems to supply this solenoid. Can anyone help me with this question?

Hi, Were you able to locate a solenoid for your starter? Or did you have to buy the complete starter assembly?
No, I was not able to get a solenoid for this application. I had to buy a complete starter.
