Headers appear to me to need a shield between the starter and the header to cut down on the heat. I'm putting a new starter on just in case and Alternator needs replacing as well, also new battery cables. I'm hoping this action plus a heat wrap on the headers or wrap for starter will help as well.
ANY SUGGESTIONS as to what else I can do. Thanks Rooster
Switching to a Ford style solenoid will solve all of your problems with non of the wrap or heat shield nonsense... Go here and do a little reading...
