Will your engine restart and run immediately after it stalls, or do you have to wait for a while?

You and I need to determine if our problem is fuel related, or if it is ignition related. If you have to wait for a while before your engine will re-start, let's try something.

If you have some carburetor cleaner in a can, spray a small burst directly into your carburetor, immediately after your engine stops running, to see if your engine will start right back up and run briefly, or if your still have to wait a few minutes before your engine will re-start.

Our problem could also be related to the fuel shut off solenoid under your carburetor. Your fuel shut off solenoid should click each time you cycle your ignition switch on and off. It has a spring loaded plunger that must retract, when your ignition switch is on, to allow fuel to flow within your carburetor. Sometimes this part will fail either before, or after it reaches full operating temperature.
