Needs new needle seats, buy kits for it and rebuild them properly. Disassemble soak, blow out and wire through all the little passages. Ethanol fuel kills the Vitron material tips on the needles. A lot of companies are going back to steel tipped ones like the old days for that reason.

Its possible you have a "heat sink" issue causing vapor lock. How old is the line and bulb? How old is the fuel pump? Does the motor "pee" like it should to make sure your water pump is right and your thermostat is opening fully?
