Re: Starter issues...heat soaking
Use a heat shield where it has some air between the shield and starter.
Air is the best insulator.
Headers do not help, if installed.
Also, check the battery cabling ensuring clean connections on both ends.
Ensure cable size is large enough in handling current.
As heat goes up, so does resistance. Starter needs X amount of power (watts).
If starter is hot, then it needs X+some more watts and if cabling is not up to handling the current load, then a 'click' will be heard.
Ensure charging system is up to par and if OE mechanical voltage regulator, swap in an electronic reg or change to a higher amp internal reg alternator.
In earlier times, a good recharge didn''t happen until 2000 rpm for about 20-30 minutes.
and battery is in good condition - no less than 650 CCA's
Ensure all connection points are free of paint.
If subject starter is installed on a 1969 Camaro, move the negative loop attached to the alt bracket to the block - less resistance - shorter path.
Some members install a Ford solenoid and wire accordingly.
