A stromberg equiped engine was spec'd with a vacumn advance dizzy, could be an issue, also you say it runs better cold, I assume a choked engine extra gas, if thats the case maybe your running lean when warm.

Setting the engine to factory specs is all well and good for a engine just out of the factory, but one that has seen some miles and differant driving styles really needs to be tweeked to what runs best for it. What do your plugs look like color wise, that is one of the best indicators of mixture, whats the compression readings, you say the engine was rebuilt.

Just thoughts.
