ur-Q Starter Solenoid death


The later 200TQ's use a heat shield (with asbestos?) around
the starter solenoid to reflect the heat from the exhaust .
I don't know if your ur-Q came with a heat shield but if it
doesn't have one the generic auto-parts stores typically
carry one for the American V8 engines. This solenoid death
was a typical problem with Chevy V8's that somehow had lost
their starter heat shields.
