You should check the wire that goes to the temp SWITCH under the intake 
air distributor. Make sure that it is connected there and is NOT shorting to 
ground somewhere. You could also check your temp switch to make sure 
that it measures open at these "normal" temps.

I had a car here a few years ago that had been partly disassembled and this 
wire was "lost" and then pinched under some of the sheet tin as it was 
reassembled. Yes, it was impossible to restart when hot.
