My name is Dane and I'll try to help you with your problem.
I think you have a bad coil. A coil will operate fine on initial startup, but go bad after warming up. Get a cheap coil tester from an auto parts store an install it between the spark plug and the plug wire. Be careful on the next step because the engine can start. Turn the engine over and check for a bright light on your tester. If the light is dim or not producing at all, replace the coil. If the engine starts, allow it to run until it dies then recheck. If your coil checks ok, The other possibility is that your float isn't allowing the fuel to enter the carb fast enough to keep up with the demand of the engine. Thus, the engine sits idle, the carb bowl fills and it will run for a while until it goes dry again. This is caused from bad gas and deposits in your carb.You will probably need to remove, dissasemble, soak, and use compressed air to blow out the jet's in your carb. Pay close attention to how the carb is attached to the engine. Make a drawing if you need to or take some pictures. Disassemble the carb as far as possible and put it in the cleaning solution. Do not place rubber parts in the solution.Allow it to soak in cleaner overnight, and then blow out the ports and jets with compressed air before you assemble and reinstall it.
I hope I've helped. Thanks! Dane
