81 fi 2000 wont start when hot

My fuel injection Spider 2000 starts and runs great when cold, however once it is at running temps it starts to sputter and die out, then it will not start, it will turn over normally and try to catch but will not run. It is as if it isnt getting its fuel. I suspect one of the fi relays but it is expensive to keep changing them.
I would appreciate any thought on this. Thanks

Re: 81 fi 2000 wont start when hot

I would have thought the opposite.. running too rich..

Fuelling not 'leaning off' as temperatures rise..

A cold engine can tolerate it.. a hot one cannot


Worth checking the basics:

Fuel supply pump working ..hot vs cold

Temperature gauge keeping track of what hose temps are telling you

Pull a spark plug when it has cough stalled.. dry..or wet with fuel?

Where in Scotland are you?
