sounds like vapor lock, the domed piston cars will do that on today's gas,
your not running too high a CR in that engine are you?

The crate would do that every time till I switched to the flat tops.

Hi, I am at my wit's end.  I can't figure out why my car will start after
sitting in the driveway, but after driving either around town or on
freeway, when I stop the engine, it won't start again.

It turns over more and more slowly without firing up until it won't turn
over at all.

Last night I took the sqbk out, same problem.  Called tow truck, when it
came about 40 min later, I tried it once more and it started.

Not overheating.  New fuel pump.  Newly rebuilt engine.

I have never had this problem before, drove my last rebuilt engine 30 years.

Please help if you have had this sort of problem.
