Does it crank over ? Just does not start? Do you have spark when it quits? No spark, likely a coil failing. If it does not turn over, it has circuit breakers instead of fuses, and circuit breaker may be tripping.

it turns over fine; i have not checked for spark. could bad coil make it stall as the engine gets hot?
Expert:  Curtis B. replied 1 year ago.
It has to loose spark or fuel. See if it has spark. If not start by replacing the coil, and the points and condenser.And yes coil would make it stall after it warms up.
