Try some starting fluid in the intake to see if it has spark.

Clean inside of distributor cap and rotor. Possibly get new.

It gets spark. Turns over now after sitting for days but dies when fully warmed up, repeat. Ever since I ran it out of gas its been doing this. Fuel is going through the carb also. Replaced ignition coil, no change. Maybe clean float bowl?

Trouble shoot after it dies. Pick up coil in distributor, vac buildup in gas tank?
