I have a 350 chevy small block with headers. When the engin is hot the starter turns over very slowy, almost like it is not getting enough juice. When it is cold it turns over just fine. What should I check to see what is causing my problem?

Sounds like the starter is getting heat soak:P Look down a few posts for some answers. But you will most likley want to get a remote mount ford solenoid or a heat sheild

I recall one solution was new battery cables.

And check all ground cables.

How hard is it to install a remote solenoid? Do you think wrapping my Headers in a heat reducer material would help? My water temperature gauge stays under 190, but I get a lot of heat out of my tranny tunnel.

Check out Mark Hamiltons site. I have had one of his solenoids on both of my Camaros since 1990. Fixed the problem once and for all, and it only took about 20 minutes to install. Very Easy.

The remote mount solonoid is the way to go. Also, I have seen magazines talk about rapping the headers with that cloth header wrap and they all said it rots the header out relatively quickly. Don't know from Experience, but don't want to risk it.-JOE-
