I got a 67 RS with a 350/350TH with Pertronix Ignition conversion and when I start my car when its hot the starter seems to drag really bad and won't start until the motor rolls over a few times. My timing is set at 7deg advanced at idle. Its got both mechanical and vacume advance. I am not sure what is causing this. It starts great cold or after it has set for 30 minutes or so? Thanks for the help.

If you have headers on the engine you should put a heat shield on the starter. I had the same problem with my 69. If it got hot enough it wouldn't start at all. I bought a Thermo-Tec blanket type shield from Jeg's for $23. Works great.
