1982 Civic 1.3 Stalling When Hot


I have an 82' Civic hatchback with the 1.3 motor in it. The car has just over 100K on it. This summer I have been having problems where the car will putter out and if not pinned it will stall out. If it does quit it tends not to start up for a while. To me it sounds like vapor lock. The thing is, the car will do it if it's sitting in traffic or if it has been running at operating temp, then shut off for a few minutes and then started again.

To try and rule out other potential issues I have changed the fuel filter, air filter, set the carb and checked the timing (which wasn't out).

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated
