Why will my car start after sitting all night but not after it's been warmed up?

My car (carburated) can sit in the cold garage overnight and start right up. But once I run it, whether two miles or twenty, and shut it off, it won't start back up again. It tries to start, but it won't. However, if I try again 2-3 hours later, it will start right back up again. I just replaced spark plugs & cables, cap & rotor, air & fuel filters. Where should I try next? Fuel pump?

When it wont start I would check for the problem check for spark check for fuel before you replace anything. When it wont start you can use starter fluid if it starts you know it is a fuel problem.
