I'd make sure you don't have a fuel leak somewhere. Mine did sort of the same thing but it had to sit overnight before it would be hard to start. I had a leak at the fuel heater on the fuel filter.

Yup a common problem with these IDI's are the return lines. They are the little rubber lines between each injector. You can buy a return line kit for like $30, cut the hose to length, new o-rings on the injectors, put the new return line caps on, and away you go (not in that order ).
