This post belongs somewhere between "Parts Wanted and "Tech Discussion" hence my sticking it in both places.
My '69 350 equipped '66 Chevy C10 will start from cold fine. However a GM design fault means the starter solenoid quickly gets cooked by the headers it has to sit right next to which prevents it from starting again for at least 4 hours. This situation as I'm sure you'll agree sucks out loud. I've established I need to convert/bypass my GM starter set up to a Ford style remote solenoid system (which I can bolt somewhere cooler).
My questions to the great and good of this forum are;
is there an idiot proof kit I can buy in the UK to make such a conversion?
If not, where can I get my mitts on a Ford (old style points ignition) solenoid that I can graft on myself?
