blndweasel I'd check two things first:

1. Is your starter overheating? If you have headers and they pass close to your starter, you can get heat soak, which will cause the solenoid to not engage when its too hot. Solution: starter head shield.
2. Do you have an electrical choke that isn't opening enough at hot temps? Remember the choke should be closed when cold, more open when hot. Solution: adjust electrical choke setpoint.

DoubleVision over advanced ignition timing or stuck open mechanical advance in the distributor can cause this, but the number one problem is lack of grounds. my car had this problem, so I ran a ground from the frame to the block, the block to the battery, the battery to the fender, and another ground from frame to the firewall, then firewall to intake, no more hot start peoblems, no more lights bickering at idle. I recommend anyone doing a engine swap to do this if they haven`t already, it makes the electrical system work a lot more efficent also. if all else fails, try it.

slider in wa Have you checked the starer draw? A new tight motor will be harder to turn over than a loose one.Just a thought.
