Difficulty starting 3300 engine when hot

Unread post by JOJO »

Hi. My Jabi 3300 engine starts fine when cold, but after some flying, if I stop the engine (ie. for a coffee somewhere), it becomes a problem to start it again. I know it can be caused by "vapor lock" - I doubt as no major bends on fuel line close to the engine, where the heat could "evaporate" the fuel in the line.
Has anyone experienced the same and have any solutions?
