Ira - with HD8s you can get leaking at the slow idle screw, which will
cause you to lose idle when the car gets hot.  Try putting a couple drops
of oil around the threads of the slow idle screw and see if that stops the
problem.  If so, you have to take the slow idle screw out and replace and
oil the O ring.

Also, the Teflon bushes can come out a bit if installed incorrectly,
something else to check.
