After driver my 312 t -bird to operating temp (195 - 200 degrees). I shut it off & while sitting it of course gets hotter like 225-230 . Then in a few minutes I start it upom agian and when I drive it in about 8 blocks or so it pulls back like it starving for gas. I kind of baby the gas pedal to keep it from killing & then it kicks in & runs fine the rest of the time. Is this a vapor lock situation? Other ideas? shoe

I have a 6 volt pump here.I installed it on my vintage truck and ran it but never actually drove it anywhere.E-mail me and I will dig it out and get the "Brand" name off of it.If you cant find one I can sell you this one.I dont think it will be hard to find one though...
