Can I Fit a performance starter into a '78 Ford 250 with Cleveland engine

I have a '78 F250 with headers and the heat is burning up the starter faster than I can get new ones in. A smaller Hi Performance Gear Reduction Starter would leave more room for cooling if I can find one that will fit up to the 3 hole design of the original. Has anyone done this?

Sounds like you may have accidentally removed the vacuum line to the modulator valve on the back of the transmission. (worst case, the headers may have burned through the hose, but either way, this is more than likely the problem.
Hope this helps

Engine dosen't start easy when it is hot


ford starters are problem starters when hot as the resistance in the windings is affected by heat. One answer is to get a heat shield and place it between the starter and the heat source ( ford spare part). The other solution is to buy a high performance starter ( used for high hp engines) as these are not affected the same as the standard starter.

Will a 1988 Ford F 250 4 wheel drive drag link and tie rod ends fit on a 1988 Ford bronco 4 wheel drive? If so is the F 250 drag link and tie rods stronger or beefier than the stock bronco drag link and...


In general, the Ford Bronco running gear is identical to an F150 4X4 running gear for the same year. The only difference is the length of the rear drive shaft. I doubt the F250 gear will fit, since typically the F150 running gear is made by ford, and the F250 running gear comes from commercially available parts (Dana, etc).

1991 f 250 when starting during cold weather starter sticks to the run postion and ignition i can turn back and forth and truck will not shut off until starter burns out


IT sounds to me like the solenoid is sticking. Follow the large wire up from where it bolts onto stater and the next thing that wire is bolted to is the solenoid.

MY F-250 6.0 ON A COLD START I AM NOT HAVING ANY PROBLEMS ONCE THE TRUCK HAS BEEN RUNNING A WHILE AND SHUT OFF IT WILL NOT START BACK UP. AFTER LETTING IT COOL IT WILL START WHAT COULD BE CAUSING THIS


this is most likely a sensor, or starter solenoid. i had this problem with my 1972 monte carlo it was the headers overheating the starter and its wires, i had to arch the starter many times till i install a heat shield,newer cars have heat shields. check to see if your starter wire is too close to engine or exhaust

92 F-250 won't start how do you replace the starter?


First, disconnect the battery, then get under the truck on the passenger side, and the starter is right there on the lower side of the engine. 3 bolts hold the starter to the engine. Take off the 2 wires on the starter solenoid and it's out.

1993 ford f250 will crank but not start. Ran fine after headers were installed. next morning, just turned over, but never started.


Is it possible that during the process some wires for the emission system came in contact with the heat and burned them? This could easily cause a short and burn out the ECM or a fuse.
