It could be both, but first clean the carb good and make sure you have no leaks.

Car will Cold Start, after getting hot it will not start until it cools off.

Sounds like the clutch plates are sticking. Happens over time. what you need to do is disassemble, inspect and clean the plates. If the parts are in good repair, this resolves the sticking issue. I use carb cleaner or brake cleaner.

300-6 cylinder runs fine cold but the farther you drive it developes a dead miss ; all tune up has been done

It may be your ignition coil. After the engine has run awhile, the coil gets hot, and starts to break up. Have you isolated this miss to 1 cylinder or does it seem to affect all cylinders?

Evo 7 front wheels start clickin clunkin when the car gets hot

presuming the car is front wheel drive, it sounds like the drive shaft, sometimes its ok when cold because of the grease inside is still thick, but as it gets hotter is becomes thinner,grease has good way of silencing things,on the shaft there is a joint called a CONSTANT VELOCITY JOINT this allows the shaft to bend whilst rotating (as in cornering) it looks like a cup with a rubber concertina gator on it,check to see if the rubber is split,if so this usualy lets the grease escape and leads to the knocking problem, im afraid the only cure is to replace the entire shaft, if its worse when turning left its usualy the left side thats gone, same goes for the right.
hope this helps

82 kz 1300........... starts fine when cold, after hot , it will not start for about half an hour, no spark to plugs. if you jump it with cables it will start even if hot.

Sounds like you have cracked coils. If they are the original ones that came with the bike I would change them. They are a known problem with these bikes.

Car won't start when engine is hot

The issue of hot no start is often the crank shaft position sensor, do you have any trouble codes, if you want a free test Kragen auto will do it for you. Let me know what comes up if anything.
