Likely you air to fuel ratio is too lean, runs mean and hot but under load dies. then floods the carb.
when it happens pull the plug ,
kill engine :
is there a lot of gas or none.
remove the filter and watch the action of the carb does it open and close easily is the filter clean.
try supplying it more gas turn the gas supply screw 1/2 CCW and see if it will stay running, if not add more.
( NOT the idle screw on the carb side w/spring )
By the way did a bit of water come out if not the clutch/pump may be binding or stuck with soap goop.back flush with hot water.

Why does my car die when engine gets hot and restarts when engine cooled


Sorry to hear about that. Your problem is most likely an ignition issue. When the vehicle is cold all the parts (including the coils, ignition module) have "shrunk" so to speak. Then, after the engine runs for a while everything starts to expand if you will. When that happens, connections that make contact when cold no longer do so after the engine warms up. Have it checked.

Dies when I first start have to restart a few times and dies at stop light unless it gets a little gas


This is usually a problem caused by a bad water temperature sensor. There are usually 2 sensors with one working the temperature gauge and the second working engine controls.

The "cold start" sequence is similar to a choke in old cars. It needs the signal from the water sensor to trigger the cold start sequence. The cold start sequence enriches the fuel charge, adjusts timing, and increases idle speed until the engine gets a little warm.

Now if stalling when warm, you have other issues. Manifold runners are a problem on some engines.

EXPEDITION STARTS UP FINE BUT DIES SOMETIME WAIT IT RESTARTS


There is a cold start "sequence" which is suppose to reset the engine controls as if you had a choke. This sequence is triggered by water temperature sensors on the engine.

This sensor is different from the one operating the dash gauge. It is probably stuck on a "hot" setting and the engine controls do not reset.

Jeep grand cherokee stalls after warming up


You need to check components again when the engine is hot and in no-start condition, otherwise, you will get bad info...obviously whichever part is doing this works fine cold. ones that react most to heat are crank pickup, ignition coil and the fuel pump.(bad ones get hot and bind up)
