starter problem

Post  cturk1010 on May 13th 2012, 7:12 am

i have a basicly stock 429 with headers and some other go fun parts but my problem is it starts great when cold but take for a ride and it gets warm the thing barely turns over and by warm i mean anything above 150 on the temp guage i put in a biger battery and tryed a different stock starter and same thing i am thinking that maybe the starter is getting to hot with the header about 1/2 inch from the starter looking at the mini starter from dbelectric and was thinking this may help but what do you think is ther something i may be missing why it does this

check all your cables over and the ends.also make sure the ground is on the engine block from the battery and a ground to the body from the engine. Smile

Sounds like heat soak. I'd try a heat shield and wrap the header tube where it comes close to the starter. Heat reduces the magnetic field which reduces how much torque the starter can generate. If the heat shield and header wrap don't do it then the late model starter like you mentioned would be a good idea provided the transmission is an automatic.

Of course you do need to make sure your timing is not too advanced too...
