Jim,

My comments are really meant to apply to “hot driving” rather than “hot starting”.  We’ve driven our ’31 on some very hot days and have found that keeping the fuel as cool as possible before it gets to the carb helps delaying a vapor lock so bad that it stops the car.  While I’ve not tried it, Ed Minnie and John Cislak have created a system for recirculating the fuel from the inlet of the carb back to the tank where the fuel is cooler.  They also enlarge the fuel lines as part of the process.
