Hot Start Problem

Even with good pressures, pumps, accumulator, if there is significant heat buildup in the engine compartment, it will vapor lock. I speak from experience here.
Does '86 turbo have a fan force feeding ambient air into the engine compartment? Vent that opens/closes with speed? Are they functioning properly? Are engine sealing tin pieces and associated gaskets in place, sealing the compartment from below?
Can the engine be restarted immediately after shutting off hot? Immediate meaning within a few seconds. Or, will failure to start occur after being off 5/10 minutes?
Good luck finding the problem.
