Starter Solenoid Installation
So your Chevy is experiencing hot start
problems. You've ruled out the starter as the culprit, or replaced it
entirely, you've checked all the connections but you still experience
those no start conditions. What to do next? Add a Ford Starter Solenoid
to your Chevy of course!
Why? Because when wire gets warmer, its
resitance goes up. Which means, when things are toasty warm your starter
is not getting enough juice to activate the (on starter) solenoid from
the original "start" wire. The wire is essentially acting like
a ballast resistor. As well, the starter heat soak creates its own set
of unique problems. Wiring in a Ford Solenoid will alleviate the wire
voltage drop problem by giving the starter mounted solenoid full battery
potential when you turn the key.
What you need to do;
Thats about all there is to adding a
remote solenoid to your GM. A couple advantages to having the Ford
-Convenient to connect a "bump-starter switch" to set valve lash.
-Only wire wire running to
starter. Which means much easier to install or remove starter, and
less likely that a group of wires will be touching headers or exhaust
