Default 89 Honda starts dies, can't start for about 2 to 3 hours later

Hi all, I was wondering if anyone can help me on this. I have a 1989 honda prelude S. It ran fine before, then all the sudden it started dying while I was driving it. I wouldn't be able to get it to start up until I waited for about 2 to 3 hours. It would run for about twenty minutes then die again. I have changed the spark plugs, wires, rotor and cap. It has a brand new battery, connections are not corroded. The fuel pump turns on, I can hear it hum when I put the key in auxiliary. I think it is something electrical is over heating or something because when it cools down I can start it. I also had my ignition checked at autozone. Also on a side note, are cv boots easy to repair on these cars or am I better off getting new axles.

Millage is roughly 275,000 too. If anyone can help me it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
