Go with at least a 1g battery cable.I pulled my starter the other day and will replace it with a high torque mini from dbelectrical when it arrives. I will also replace the battery cables in hopes of curing slow crank when hot.
As long as the wire powering you ignition has power in both the crank and run positions, wire from "R" terminal is not needed. I would check first.bochnak said:I am running HEI. The "R" terminal wire basically fell off when removing the starter, and is not needed in my application from what I have read.
Yes it can, but would not cause slow cranking. usually it would cause a click or nothing from the starter. As wires get hotter, resistance goes up, anything to keep them cooler is better. If you are going to replace it, up the wire size to 10g.bochnak said:I guess my question is, can the trip wire ("S" terminal) cause a heat soak issue? Should I replace the wire? Cover it in a heat resistant sleeve?
