360 dying for no apparent reason

My rebuilt 360 h(th400, qt)as started to die after about ten minutes of driving and will not restart for about 20 minutes after that. I,ve tried to put a little fuel down the carb but it won't even fire. I've replaced the coil, plugs wires,cap rotor,ign mod,resistor wire fuel pump filters, lines fuel pump. Any suggestions? It also has a relatively new edelbrock intake and carb (at time of rebuild) and I boiled out and coated both fuel tanks. Thanks, Frustrated in Phoenix

Re: 360 dying for no apparent reason

It sounds like maybe your fuel system is hydro locking. That is to say that your fuel in your fuel line is getting hot, and turning to vapor.
Do you have a return line that is higher in elevation than your supply line? That would be a good place to check.
