which brand was it?

You could try a mini starter which may indeed solve the problem but like I said its not always sunshine and bunnies with mini starters

You could try to find a better brand of stock stater...if that's even possible

Why did you replace the old starter?

I cant blame the mini starter concept which is actually logical n will probably work for you. Im pretty sure my connections are all good n it works most of the time so i live with it, maybe its just a bad egg. I never had any issues with my stock starter . The mini starter I got from NAPA so I would think it would be fairly decent especially for that price I payed for it.

let us know if the 55 buck mini (or whichever one you go with) solves your problems.

They sell what i call a "bag" that goes over the starter and it acts as a heat shield and keep the header heat from over heating the starter. Don't rap the headers though otherwise they will rust.

whats the compression on your 347? I would think a stock starter would have a little harder time turning it over if you went 10:1 or higher.

To highjack this thread a lil I switched to a high torque mini starter and after the car fires the starter is still turning for a second. does not sound good but I cant find the fix?

I would think so, if you can't find it at a parts store any mustang shop or performance shop should have them.

You need to do or have done a voltage drop test to determine the source of the trouble.
