I have a problem starting my 1926 vintage Austin 12/4 after it has been driving for about 1/2 hour. At present, the starter motor is being refurbished so Iam starting the car by hand-crank. The car starts cold without any problems and drives well.
Once the engine is shut down, and left for about 15 minutes however, I cannot start the engine by hand crank.
After about an hour, the engine starts by hand-crank as it did when initially started cold.
Is there something I can do, or something I should not be doing to start the engine when hot by hand crank?
