RE: {Chrysler 300} Slow starting when the engine is hot



All great suggestions here, let add one more based on personal experience.  When I first got my G running with rebuilt engine, I ran into the “heat soak” issue i.e.; shut down after running to full temp, go to start and difficulty in turning over, starter struggling.  I made sure I had the proper cables, good and tight, no corrosion etc.  Talked to a starter rebuilder about the issue.  He looked up the starter in the parts book and told me I had the small stator winding in my off-the-shelf rebuilt starter.  He recommended it to be rebuilt with the heavy duty stator winding he found in his parts book, and said it was listed for heavy duty use including the Dodge Power Wagon.  He ordered the winding, installed it, and that ended my heat soak problem.   I’ll bet the Letter cars that use this starter all had the heavy duty winding, but I’ve never researched it.

I put mini starters on two of my 1960s.

 

 

Had to grind the adapter a bit to clear the block and you have to have longer battery and signal cables. Quiery said they can make longer or style cables, but I used a two piece set up. 

 

Here are some pictures.

my 1960 Chrysler starts easily when cold, but when the motor is up to full running temperature and the engine is turned off and then I try to start it again, the starter spins slowly and I am unable to get the car started. Is there a recommendation for a high torque low geared starter to solve this issue?
