An insulating blanket would be a good idea regardless. Anybody have a recommendation for a good, reasonably priced one??

I'm having to sort of toss stuff together to take with me when I go pick this one back up (from having the brakes worked on). I can make it back to my area even with the hot starting issues, but if it turned out to be a relatively straightforward fix...."easy" all the way up to replacing the starter....it wouldn't be the first time I've parked at a Wal-Mart or K-Mart and worked on an engine!! Especially with this vehicle....I've got a much more comfy place to crash for a while if I need to, instead of the usual putting my seat back and my cap over my eyes.

FYI for anybody else new to the Winnie line, the company is VERY helpful at providing diagrams and links to parts catalogs. I had a reply from the service guy within a day of requesting information. Just need the serial number off the chassis for him to match up.

Racing outlets like Jegs and Summit Racing carry them.

Cheapest would be a non-flammable insulating "cloth" for use in welding or soldering plumbing pipes. Not as good as a full blanket but better than nothing and maybe enought to help.

Check your local hardware store in the plumbing supplies.

Nick, that's an excellent idea. I'll run by my local shop and see if they can fix me up. Thanks!
