It could be vapor lock. Vapor lock is a condition where the hot gasoline turns into vapor bubbles either in the fuel line or carb. When it happens, the vapors will cut off fuel flow thru the carb, essentially causing the engine to run out of fuel. You should re-route or isolate the fuel line away from the heat of the engine and install an inline fuel filter close to the carb. Also make sure that the cooling fins are not clogged up with trash or something that is causing the engine to overheat. I would also check the gas cap. Make sure the vent is clear and clean around the gasket in the cap. This can sometimes cause similar problems. Hope this helps and good luck.

Most times the briggs engines start hard when hot because the exhaust valve is leaking at the seat.If you hear a hissing noise from the muffler when you are trying to start instead of a good crisp pop it that is a good indication the valve is burnt.To be sure you would have to have a compression or leak down test done on engine.A valve job is not an easy job if you don't have the right tools.
