Protecting the starter on a sbc
Got a quick question for you guys.
I have an issue with the starter on my s10. Due to how the headers are routed, the starter gets alot of heat.
That heat makes it almost impossible to crank after the motor has been running for awhile. I first thought it was a timing issue but adjusting the timing makes no difference. I have also replaced all the wiring to the starter and bought a battery with higher cranking amps.
The only constant has been the starter and I still have the same issue.
I plan on getting a new starter in the extremely near future and wanted to know what you guys would suggest as far as sheilding it from all that heat.
Wrapping the header isn't really an option.
So, should I try and wrap the starter itself?
Did any SBCs come with a heat shield for the starter?
