Engine stops? A lack of fule to the cylinder. have you removed the carburetor float bowl and checked the flow of fule from the tank, into the float bowl through the needle valve passage? I assume it will start back up, and does not have to wait until it cools off?

See the link above, and remove the float bowl and check the flow of fule from the tank. If slow to come into the bowl area, check the needle valve for restriction.
