I think that your problem is and ignition coil. Once the coil gets warm or hot it quits firing. If you have the ability to check spark going to the spark plug you can easily check this. Once the engine is warm or hot and quits do a spark test. If you are getting no spark then most likely the ignition coil is not firing to the plug. Do you have a single or twin cylinder engine?
