Re: Guys I'm in a jam

Had issues like that when I first got my 72, the battery cables on the car were under sized and in poor condition, I changed them out with cables a gauge over size than stock, I also added a ground wire on the frame to the engine and another from the body to the battery (yeah I know it's overkill). Also I insulated the fuel line and carb. That solved all the hot start problems and even some other issues as well, I still have a high dollar starter and heat shield sitting on the shelf for over a year now, the 10 year old plus delco starter is still kicking. Might not solve your problem if you do this but it's a good place to start.
