1. New engine will have more friction.

2. My guess is that engine of that size has higher compression than stock and will be tougher to spin.

3. Engine spins and starts, are you sure there is a real problem? Some of us - even in Arizona desert - have never felt or measured our starter's temperatures.

4. Self-supported autostick starters have a little more oomph.

If the bushing in the transmission has play, that can happen, and drain the battery quick.

The principle behind the invention of the starter motor is that it cannot be used for any continuous length of time, say over 5-10 secs or so.

There's also a 12V and 6V version of that bushing, different diameters.

Over heating starter is from cranking to long.... Let starter rest between cranking sessions, if motor is hard starting that may be problem and may not be starter motor...

I've just fitted a new turn key engine (2017) but it's over heating the starter motor it's fitted in my type3, I've tried 2 starters with the same problem. Any ideas?
