380 still dying.

Still haven't found the trouble.

Have an 82 380 sl that dies after warm up.
It will run if you hold starter switch in start position.
I put fuel in the intake still doesn't start.
When it cools off, it runs fine till it gets warm again.

Since your report deals with only after warm-up, I would suspect a vacuum leak, for the reason that untill warmup, the mixture is being enriched.
