Re: Heat Soak
I was going to put a mini-starter on my 67 Cougar and bought one from Jeg's.
The instructions specifically said to NOT jumper from the battery connection to the start connection of the solenoid.
Then they went into all the wiring changes I would have to accomplish to use that starter in that car.
I got my original starter rebuilt, put a DEI heat shield around it and put it back in.
I have a mini-starter on my 64 El Camino's 350 and it works like a champ, too.
My point being that all that extra wiring and solenoids should not be necessary to start your car, no matter the temps.
