well the thing is it would be easier to lengthen the wires on the starter which is only 2 wires compared to the 5 or 6 on the block connector, i just dont know where to run it, i appreciate the advice but its not really answering my question, my question is where to put it and where to run the wires, thank you for the posts though, but if you could tell me where to run it or any ideas how to simply cover it up it would really helpIf you move the reg/rec unit why would you need to alter the length of the starter solenoid wiring? All you would need to do is to lengthen the 5 or 6 wires that go from the loom into the block connector to the reg/rec. They are usually mounted to the outer face of the subframe etc, this is to allow the air to get to the cooling fins on the heatsink for the unit.
The newer style mosfet ones don't get that hot, but the old ones need heat sinked a lot of times...while this subject is up, anyone have issues mounting these and getting too much heat off of them. Im going to move mine also, but have been thinking about how hot does this thing really get. No issues wiring, but thinking about something being too close. IE flasher unit or something of that nature.
is that under your subframe?
I used a piece of stainless painted one side and left the side I mounted to the rec to raw so it would work like a sink.
I used hit sink paste/gel on the back side and used heat shrink all the way up around the plug so it was sealed because I was a little worried about weather.
