Engine will not start

I have a Robin EC13V 2 cycle engine on a Snapper mower deck.  Engine runs great when started cold, butI have some trouble with starting after mower gets hot and sits in the sun for a while.  If I put the mower in the shade and wait a while the mower starts fine.  I have been through the carburetor a few times, but not sure what I am looking at.  Any suggestions?

    It sounds like vapor lock. Is the fuel line close to a heat source? You might try wrapping it with foil.

    In some of my past endevers with some old 2 cycles they run the best when cold as in like drag racing possibly maybe compression issues or crankcase vacume leakage kinda guess like I'm taking a wild guess
