[TR] TR6 will not start when hot

I have a similar problem.  If I try to crank the car after sitting a
few minutes, it's hard to start.  If it sits longer, it will start
without a problem.

I attribute it to heat soaking of the carbs and fuel line...and I also
have a heat shield.  I haven't looked into the routing of the fuel
line yet - my solution is to just keep driving and never stop...

I usually keep the throttle wide open when trying to start but lately that does not seem to make a difference. I usually have a strong smell of gas after cranking for a while. I have installed one of the carb heat shields but also no help. I assume it has to do with the carbs getting to hot above the exhaust manifolds, but I have spoken to others and they do not have this problem. This has been going on for years and would love any input to possible fixes.
