When i turn the key i get one click and thats it. I jumped the hot terminal to the purple plug on the starter and nothing.I pulled the starter and hotwired it on the bench and it just made a grinding sound.Is the starter shot or the solenoid? Any comments on a mini starter like where to get and what brand? I think my headers are cooking my starters.Also where can i get a heat sheild?Thanks.

I have only experience with the Powermaster and Tuffstuff mini starters. They are the top of the line and nary had one fail. Available from Summit Racing me thinks?

While a heat shield works sometimes, other times the heat is so prevalent that a shield does not help. The permanent magnet mini starters should do the trick and make sure your wiring is in great shape.

I agree it's a failed starter but what's wrong using a GM mini or a Tilton? Actually think the real problem is the solenoid but not there to look at it.

Hey John.....nothing wrong with the GM or a Tilton minis as far as I am concerned, just have not had the experience with those two to the extent of the others, that's all. And I know for sure that TuffStuff and Powermaster absolutely manufacture in this country

However, I will tell you that some of the aftermarket companies sell new regular/stock starters as new tho. They might have new cases or field windings and such but can have used parts in them. I found this out thru my research in starters/manufacturers/remanufacturers last year.

Haven’t put a late model starter up into an older car myself, but others have. Only played with them on later year cars.
Still don’t believe that every starting problem is heatsoak and tossing a Ford solenoid doesn’t always address the real problem. This thread contains pictures and part numbers for the GM starter.
