Strange Starting Problem

I have been having a weird starting issue lately (seems to only happen when very cold). The engine is modified with HEI and a Weber. The Jeep will start up fine from dead cold, even if it is -30. However, if I have it totally warmed up and then shut it down and leave it for anywhere between 20min and 1hour (when there is still some warmth in the engine). I will go out to start it, it will fire up like everything is fine, and then about 45sec. later it will die. Then it won't start until I leave it for the engine to cool off.

I'm thinking it might have something to do with my choke, but I'm really not sure. Any advice or ideas would be appreciated.

EDIT: If it does this, I can pull off the air cleaner and there will be a small pool of gas. As well, I can usually get it started by pouring a little seafoam down the carb.

Thanks
