I am trying to find the best, easiest but safe way to route the wires away from heat and or getting pinched.
It is a 400 with long tube unknown brand headers.
I will be using a mini high torque starter.
I can't use the factory heat shields because of the style of headers. The one on the motor mount or the one that gets mounted to the head bolt stud.

It seems like there should be enough room along the side of the oil pan under the motor mount but above the cross frame. (Where the original fuel line gets routed.)

I was thinking if I put the wires in some fiberglass heat wrap sleeve claiming of reflecting 600 degrees continues and 1100 intermittent. I don't actually believe these numbers but if it's around 300 or so maybe it would be good?

Any thought or suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

I did buy the horizontal version of the tube but still wouldn't be able to use it because it would be right on top of the header tube.
Now if they made a tube that would mount to the oil pan bolts that would be perfect.
But I should be able to tie with zip ties and or even use a tubing clamp on one of the factory holes for the fuel line but was just concerned about the oil pan temp if it is touching it.

I went along the oil pan and used the RobbMc starter with clockable solenoid. Made it much easier to run the wiring
That's the starter I got too. I have not rotated it yet. I just got it up there as it was shipped. Once I route the wires I will see if if could be in a better position.
