Default Re: hard starting when hot

pulled the solenoid off Saturday. Cranked the engine over with the coil disconnected and everything covered I thought gas would pour out. Nothing came out. So I sprayed it with carb cleaner then used a cotton swab in the hole. I then took the solenoid, it looked clean, but was loose as the O ring was screwed and I replaced the O ring and put it on the battery on my Harley and it seemed to work. So I don't know if that helped. Drove it today and when it was hot I nailed the gas pedal on the floor and it started pretty easy. I wonder if the float level is too high. But I will continue to test. I guess since the engine is rebuilt things will be different.I'll let you know
