Car won't start after being run

I recently put 83 motor back in 911 after replacing broken head studs. The car will start when the engine is cold; however after being run the car will not turnover. The starter engages but the engine does not turnover. I then replaced the starter with the high torque upgrade and the same problem exists. Car started right up after sitting for 4 days. I drove it to the gas station about 10 minutes...starter engages but engine will not turnover. Any suggestions or ideas would be appreciated.

So you had it towed home? have you tried to start it again? the heat of the engine may not be the actuall problem, my just seem that way. check all the grounds and the battery. you need a good ground. I have spent hours chasing problems that had nothing to do with what the car did.

No I waited about an hour and the car started right up since the engine was not that warm I guess. The same thing happened last Saturday and I ran the car to normal operating temp and the car did not start for about 4 hours. I will check all of the grounds just to make sure, but I have no idea what could be causing the malfunction.

Thanks for the ideas'
Mike

The car turns over but will not start. With the new starter it sounds like it has more than enough torque to turn the motor over.
