The first thing that comes to mind is your guys IP's are on there last leg. As they were the tolerances inside them become "looser". It gets to the point were the tolerances become to much, and when warm (since metal expands) they become even larger. So you try to start and the tolerances are to far apart so the IP can't push fuel out at high enough pressure.
To test: next time this happens take a full water bottle with Luke warm water not ice cold and pour it over the IP. If it starts, because the water cools the case and brings tolerances closer, you knwo you need an new IP.
