Could it be in the timing or ground straps for battery. The battery sits in the bed of the truck. I've set the timing at between 10-12 BTDC. When cold starts fine and runs smooth. Again this is a 49 custom Chevy with a 383 cu in engine. This starting issue is driving me crazy! Recap of what's been done.
New fuel pump. Re-route of fuel lines away from heat. New distributer. New battery. All new guts to distributed. I am getting spark when this no start on hot engine occurs.?????
