NAS Starter Heat-shield

As contributing factors of the NY extreme heat recently and having no heat shield, my starter keeps freezing up. The starts go from normal to very weak to fully seized starter. The shield rotted off a few years ago and had planned to rig something.

I know many suggest to run without but this year with the high heat its been exceptionally bad.

Any ideas for shield or is this a sign of new starter in the horizon?


Thanks!!

Short of an OEM shield, Thermo-Tec makes a lot of stuff. http://www.thermotec.com/products/14...at-shield.html
I'm not a fan of wrapping things though, because of rust issues, but they also make matting you could attach to a home made bracket.

Right, that is one of my options, wrap it..... which I agree not ideal. I have not found any OEM, bought a while back ago but was for different exhaust system. I have Borla system.

Fabricating something similar to OEM might not be to bad to mount and wrap it with thermo tape.....

A 'U' shaped piece held to the starter by a band clamp with a piece of sheet metal riveted to the other leg and then the heat reflective material stuck on or riveted to the sheet metal should do the trick.

What I was thinking. Should not be rocket science!
Do you think a new starter would matter?

Thought there was a company here and/or in the UK that was making heat shields for rovers?

Could be yours is damaged from heat soak. But maybe a heat shield will do.
If you do replace it, I highly recommend a Denso from britishstarters.

Thats the starter that I have lined up..... the heat shield crumbled when I last removed the starter, hard to believe it had been doing any shielding the last few years.

I think time to upgrade & avoid further issues. If I'm going to go through the painful process of removing to attach a shield, I will upgrade it.

As far as I know, they don't make shield that will fit NAS with those headers. They make a larger cone shaped which I think fit ROW or different exhaust configuration.
