hello all I have a problem that is driving me crazy. I'm restoring a 1962 silver cloud II drophead. the car is perfect except for one little problem I'm having. When the car is cold it starts perfect and it runs like a dream. As soon as I shut the key off when it is warm it will not start. I wait like 15 minutes and it starts right up again and it is perfect. I've done the Ignition timing,the points have been set up in a distributor machine,I have replaced the points, the condenser,distributor cap, and rotor and still I have the same problem. While the car will not start there is gas coming up and there is a great spark at the coil. Just wondering if anybody could help I would appreciate it.
I have reluctantly allowed this post despite the fact that it has been sent from a proxy server which has been a well-known tactic of forum pests on this and other forums. I request JORGE to use a valid email address fpr future posts.

If you have spark and fuel, I would guess that you have enough compression on a cold engine to start, but not enough compression on a warm motor to start. You also seem to have changed everything but the spark plugs. Whip the old plugs out, do a cold compression test. Insert new plugs, warm up the motor, then do a warm compression test. Do the figures differ?
