Question hard start on warm 318

hey guys, i'm having an issue with my 318. when it's cold it will start right up usually with no issues. once in a while i might stall and i'll have to try again. lately when it is up to temp if i stop somewhere and shut it off the restart is a real pain. it will crank way to long and will only start if i hold it to the floor. and when it finally does fire it sputters and i have to play with the petal to get it to smooth out and idle. it has an edelbrock 600 on it. to best of my knowledge the chock works properly and the timing is correct. also the fuel filter is a week old. any suggestions? thanks

After it's warm, is the choke fully open?

Common problem with our old Dodge trucks. Heat from the manifold boils the fuel out of the carb when you shut it off after a long run.

Is the fuel line near the exhaust anywhere in the engine bay?

the chock is fully open and the fuel line is tucked up in the frame rail away from the exhaust
