Rest time was anywhere from 30 min to 1 hour. I did try several methods.....give a little gas, give it no gas, give it a lot of gas.....still just didn't want to start all the way. It stumbled, runs rough, hear a backfire, and then stalls out. Lasts from 5-10 seconds before stalling again. Almost like a vapor lock, heat soak type of issue. If they find someting, I'll report back.

Have someone run it and let it recreate the problem. Once the problem presents, open the engine cover and see if it starts sooner than before. If the blower is used, heat soak isn't much of a problem.
