WON'T START WHEN HOT

1981 Jaguar XJ6 • 6 cylinder 2WD Automatic •

1981 Jaguar XJ6 won't start when hot. I have changed the fuel pressure regulator, added a thermal vacuum switch, vented the fuel caps - nothing is solving the problem. If you wait 20-30 minutes, it starts fine. It also starts if you use starter fluid. Almost feels like a vapor lock.

Thanks
