64 Nova - Car starts right up when cold. As soon as it gets up to engine temp and I go to restart it drags. Thinking of going to a mini starter to get it away from the headers some. have tried protecting the starter with wraps with no luck to this point. Starter just sit to close to headers. Any help would be welcome. Just installed a brand new Red Top battery tonight. Starts as soon as I hit the key when cold and drags when engine is up to temp. Car runs 180 all day.

My mini starter sits practically on the headers. :(
I have header wrap around the area when the plug boot is almost touching.
Still looks new, works great in any heat.

I swapped from a stock style GM starter in my 66 that was giving me the same problems (close to the headers - would start fine the first time or when cool but once it was at temp forget it). I put in a mini style high torque (Tuff Stuff) and the problem is gone.

So nice to have a car that starts everytime again.
