Sounds like maybe the idle mixture is way too rich. Rich enough to make it start easily without the choke when cold, but once its warmed up it is too rich for smooth running?

110 HP 4 speed, New Fuel Pump, New Gas Tank, New Sender / Pick up, New Inline Clear Fuel Filters (not my choice) Rebuilt carburetors (filters removed), New Electronic (FAST) Ignition, New Cap, New Rotor, New 8MM wires, New Spark Plugs, New Oil and Filter. Note: Chokes are disconnected (not my idea either) All connections have double checked for leaks.

**Problem: Starts easily when Cold ?HARD TO START WHEN HOT AND RUNS ROUGH WHEN AT FULL TEMPERATURE?, Fuel Filters (Clear) lose fuel when hot. Once it starts it run rough, and hard to keep running.  Once the car cools off, it starts right up and runs fine, until it gets to full operation Temperature, then it runs rough again.

Any ideas on what is causing this problem????
