Tilton > Summit US$471 landed via DHL. (~AU$630)
US$88 shipping ain't too bad.

Before you go off spending cash on a new starter, have you tried a heat shield? I made one for my SBC from the ACL sheet from Bursons

Instead of throwing money at "starters", maybe some of you guys should be looking at running a remote solenoid

Except for you "permanent magnet" guys

The remote sol only helps if you get the 'dreaded' click when trying to start a hot engine. If the engine cranks slowly, the remote sol will do nothing & in fact may worsen the problem....

The popular remote Ford sol can actually make the problem worse. These sols were used with a particular type of Ford starter that did NOT have a sol mounted on the starter. They draw a lot of current & will pull reduce the current available for the starter motor.

If you want to use a remote 'sol', all you need is a 60 amp relay from Jaycar, which is very compact & draws very little current.

I think if the starter is not cranking it's too late for a shield.
..But great idea Vic.

There are various styles and with my starter so confined amongst the primaries, I found a blanket to bet an easier fit. I credit it completely as to why my previous little Hitachi had lasted so long.

It was the bloody battery! For years I have been plagued with slow starting and heat soak problems. The battery has always checked out on a battery tester, so assumed the starter. Decided to plug in a battery from the Landcruiser and bingo all was cured. It was the capacity which was the problem
Now fitted a 4wd size unit and its a champ. Could kick myself

4WD sized?
You don't need one of those for decent cranking amps and capacity.

Why not just buy an Optima?
At least 750 CCA, more capacity that you'll ever need, fit the OE battery trays & clamps and being an AGM, they don't leak or vent hydrogen.
In an enclosed space like your trunk, I hope you didn't buy a lead acid.

Bought a 34R red top for the Caprice from HS Motors (auto elec) on Oban Road, Ringwood for $270. Cranks with 800CCA for as long as I want.
..and plenty on eBay at that price delivered free.
