Starting issues after been driving a while

Hey guys just wondering what causes my car to have a hard time cranking over after ive been driving a while? car starts up fine but once good and running it cranks over as if battery is low, could it be too much advanced? I have my timing set at 34 with vacuum ad. plugged any suggestions as to what i should do thank you. Ruben

Headers? How close is your starter to your exhaust?
My starter gets heat soaked and it wont start until I let the car cool down. I have seen starter shields on jeg but haven't tried one yet.

Ahh the dreaded Chevy hot no start problem. You have a few options, you can run a remote solenoid like the ones found on fords (they're available at summit or jegs), you can heat shield your starter (also available at summit or jegs), or you can wrap your exhaust near your starter (available at any auto parts store). Personally, I had a remote solenoid short on me, so nowadays I just shield the starter and wrap the exhaust... problem solved. I also like to run a mini starter with a rotateable mounting block to move the solenoid away from the exhaust.
