Could it be that your timing is off ?? your timing will cause the same thing..

do you have it wired with a ford siliniod that helps sometimes also like suggested before heat wrap the headers and you can buy heat sheilds for the starter itself 20 also has a good idea there alot of timing will make it a bear to start try spinning the motor over before ypou hit the power switch that's what i do

Just curious. If you wrap the starter, aren't you, in effect, trapping the heat?

I would think wrap on the headers, in the area around the starter, and a heat SHIELD would work (but then again, I haven't experienced the problem you are. Even thought I did have similar, if not the same headers on my last car)

there is no heat in your starter the heat comes from the headers and block if you cover the entire stater it doesn't transfer that much heat in the mounting part of thre starter to cause a problem
