    Hi guys, new member here, just wondering if any of you guys with a ls conversion using the lhs starter and 1 3/4 triys  have had trouble with your starter motor getting hot and not even clicking after a long drive?

    I haven’t, but having said that my headers are ceramic coated for that reason and also i spent some time and gave mine more clearance.  Not sure what starter etc you are using but with mine there is a lug on the top that’s not used that came very close when I had the Pacemakers.  I ground it off.  You can see here where the texta mark is I cut that away as you can see how close it was to the pipe.

    Not LS based but try a heat shield around it. I used one off a VE V6, quite cheap (bought it years ago though).

    It’s modified slightly to fit and work. It has a clip/clamp that fits on the solenoid and then I made a bracket using the starter mounting bolt and riveting it to the shield.
