If your choke isn't hooked up I would bet that's your problem. Is the choke flap open or closed when your engine is up to temp(180*-210)? I would reroute your fuel lines so you don't snag them on a rock or something. Does it get to the point where your motor will die and not start till it cools off?

Phil, when you replace the module in the HEI be sure to use the heat barrier gel/paste. Die electric grease is not the proper product. There should have been a packet of party gel with the module.

Hook up your choke or set it wide open so it isn't closed when cold.

changed control module,vac advance, and coil. advanced timing and moved choke dial back one line. with all that being done the thing runs like a champ. Even feels like i have more power and throttle response. I have not done anything with the fuel lines yet.

But there is a resulting issue now the idle is really high on crank..drop it into gear idle is norm.
