jeep will not start when warm

1989 4.2 liter won't start when the engine is warm. I have a 470 cfm 4bbl holley carb. It starts fine when cold. After I drive it for awhile an let it sit 10 minutes it will not start. The temp gauge reads 195 when trying to start. If I let it cool to 150 to 170 it usually starts in the temp range.
