Had engine replaced in my 460 8 cylinder ford engine in my motor home. Runs good when it first starts up but when I stop the engine after it is warmed up it is very hard to get it to turn over. I installed double cables from battery to starter & has not helped. Wrapped starter with insulate material also underside of points under neath replaced. It just will not start like a normal engine. After 15 or so minutes it might start like it needs time to cool off. Also this is a Jasper engine replacement. Please help

Well I don, t know if you had the starter tested and batt, but I will assume you have and they tested good. The prob can be caused by too much fuel as injector orings if fuel inj. Timeing off. Set the timeing when eng is hot. Are all the accessories fre not binding ac pump /alt/power steering/air pump. Sounds like timeing to me please check these things and get back with me billymac
