Wow. I need to give this a try. I wouldn't think it would work either, but I would be willing to give it a shot! Easy enough to do.
Problem could be the solenoid on the starter. It's in the heat too.
Remote mounted solenoid is away from the heat.
I always thought it was the starter motor itself cooking and going out.
But it could be solenoid related. We'll see. I'll try it out and see what happens. I need to figure something out. Tired of this issue.
