Question about Cars & Trucks
It appears to be over loading and being shut off by the thermal overload switch. This can be from failing bearings, overload as the motor is too small for the job, the rpms are too low for correct operation and the start capacitor is not being taken out of the circuit on starting. ( some small hp motors have a set of contacts at one end that are closed when stationary but on reaching operational speed are opened by a centrifugal bob weight. When closed the start capacitor induces extra voltage to get the motor turning and when running is taken out of the circuit. The points in this system are known to burn together and so keep the capacitor in service which will over heat or burn out the motor. Best have it checked out by an accredited electrical motor re-builder for the cause of the problem.

Fuel pump? That is odd, it seems there is no issue with getting fuel. I would check the idle and the choke settings. Try tweaking those a bit.

SOURCE: suburban stalls while driving
a bad crank sensor can cause this. shuts off while going down road, and will start about 10 min, later with no problems runs fine until it quits again. hope this helps,
