I'm probably stating the obvious but I presume you've cleaned and checked all the wire connections. If you haven't yet done so, it might be a good time to install the hot-start relay kit that AutoAtlanta sells for these cars. That may solve the problem and will prevent the future non-starts when the engine is hot. Also, ask the same question on the 914 Club or World forum and you'll get some real expert advice.

Relocate the fuel pump out of the engine compartment so it will not get heat soaked
