    If I oil cooled an automotive starter motor (my theory is to place it half if not fully submerged in motor oil as can be done with computers) and didn't run it too hard do you think I could use it in a continuous duty application?

    no, starter motors are built for intermittent duty. too much heat generated for continuous duty
