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.
