Unhappy '68 250SE Saloon

I have a 1968 250SE saloon which starts runs perfectly except after 10 or 15 mins the car stalls and cuts out. Won't start till the next day. I have been reliablely told that the auto choke is staying on and thus the engine floods. Is this a "big fix" job? Are there parts available for the injector pump?

'SE? 'or 'S' ?

It won't be the choke sticking if it is a SE because it's fuel injected and has a cold start device but nothing remotely like a choke,if it is an 'S' it will have twin Solex carbs and it may just be one or both chokes is sticking on,you can check by removing the aircleaner when the engine is hot and seeing if the flap on the top of the primary side of the carbs is shut( choke stuck) or open ,(choke open and OK) .If it is an SE,get it to a specialist who can tune the MFI for you,not the local Pep boys.
