A friend of mine is having a problem with his big body. Listed as MY 1973.

After running and getting warm, Leave the car from 10-30 minutes and come back to restart, the car acts like it's starving for fuel. the car tries to start, sputters for a few seconds then finally catches if it starts at all.

Cold Starts are as expected, Car has had all hoses and vacumm lines replaced, filters replaced. Injectors checked for flow, fuel pressure checked, major tune up, Runs great when running, etc.

Any thoughts?

Seems like an issue with no residual pressure in the fuel circuit after getting a hot soak.

Couple of people mentioned a fuel accummulator, and/or check valve, but he can't locate it either on the car or in the manual.

Any insight appreciated.
