I suspect something in the ignition. Sometimes components fail when they heat up. --- Next time it fails, squirt some starting fluid in the intake. If it fires, you know that it has spark.

Thanks for the help I will try this. Any other things it could be??

I tryed the starting fluid and it would start now what??

Has anyone gor any anserwers to my problem
