1984 4k - no start

Well the car starts and runs. After its warm though, it no longer starts. Today it would need to sit for just a few minutes before it started again.
While running, I can tell it isn't running well on the low end.
For the no-start the O2 sensor may make sense as it seems to have trouble after warm up.
For the not running well - I'll take a shot at the DPR.
Now to your comments - I thought the DPR was the assembly directly over the fuel meter arm sitting on top of the airbox. Which is the fuel distributor?

Pull it off the side of the fuel distributor, and spray carb cleaner
or brake cleaner in through the holes in the side. DO this to both the
DPR and the holes in then fuel distributor. BTW, have you done all the
checks for spark already?
