86 c10

What's everyone.

I own an 86 Chevy C10 Pickup, the current issue that I am experiencing with the truck is that during cold start, it starts at one crank, idles fine and runs fine, but after driving the vehicle for example to the store. I shut of the truck, do what I need to do and then when I turn the key, it won't turn over. I would have to wait for about 30 minutes or so before it decides to turn over. Its frustrating having to wait that long before it can crank over, for some reason something in the engine external components has to cool down, does anyone have any idea what this is caused by.

Your help will be greatly appreciated.

You're getting heat soak in your starter/solenoid. Common with chevy's. Try this. It works.

I figure it was the starter at first because I had to tap the solenoid while my wife cranks the engine and it started. That was my next option was to run a remote starter. As for the boiling fuel in the carburetor i've check it, but nothing noticed.

Keep you all update if any changes or problem solved.

Thanks
