My 76 450slc usually starts with no problem from cold start. However, there are occassions where it won't start initially, then when I try to start again
immediately there's nothing. If I wait a few minutes (approx. 2-3) it will start. Has anyone ever experience this and if so what was the fix?

The cold start valve explains the easy cold start - It makes the mixture richer for the cold start.
The warm and hot starts are most probaply with poor/weak mixtures. Check air leaks and if not any check the air measure plate home and basic positions. If air plate has too much free play it does not press the FD plunger before strong engine running.
