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



I remember a 59 Plymouth we had and on a long trip to northern Ontario the radiator hose burst at highway speed and the engine overheated.  We were able to patch the hose and limp to a gas station for a replacement upper hose.  After that episode when ever the engine was hot it would crank slow as if it was binding up.  It always started but would crank slowly.  A slightly warped block??

Did this just start happening on its own or was something worked on or changed, and then it started? I had a similar problem many years ago with a car I purchased. It turned out the timing was set way too far advanced by the prior owner. Once the timing was retarded to where it was supposed to be, the problem went away.

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?
