It really does sound like a grounding issue to me more than a heat one.. the exhaust isn't going to overheat it when its not running.
I would replace the main cable that goes from the battery to the starter, even if it looks good chances are its corroded or somehow damaged in the middle somewhere. while your at it I would replace the main ground for the battery as well.

Just curious, who are you getting your rebuilt starters from. Some re builders are crap and some are not so bad. In my old truck I went through a bunch of starters until I had an auto electric shop rebuild my old one for me. Lasted ten years (thats when I traded it in on the Jeep). Now I always buy new or even rebuild it myself. Nothing like jumping in first thing in the morning, turn the key and.........Click. Very lonely sound.
