RESTART

Electrical problem
1965 Buick Riviera V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 89000 miles

Runs great but after driving twenty miles or so it will not start back until it cools down. Not even turns over. Can you help?

Not even turns over. Are you referring this as ( When you turn the key to starting position nothing happens )?

Could be vapor locking try sealing the fuel pump from the exhaust manifold

Short out the starter solenoid and see what happens if it cranks the engine over if so check and test the neutral safety switch and ignition switch
