    Default fuel pump to hot

    i have 1979 pro street el camino and i am running a 402 cubic inch big block chevy in it. the problem i am having is the car runs great but when you park it at a cruise night or a car show for a few hours it wants to start hard and not run right at first till you get a little ways down the road. i thought maybe it was the lines getting to hot but i tried to touch the fuel pump and i couldnt thats how hot it was. i am running a stock type fuel pump connected to the block. any ideas on what i could try or do. thanks for the help in advance.

    canton makes a thin phenolic block that reduces fuel pump heat somewhat.

    Summit sells them too
