Sounds like the ignition control module is heating up and needs to be replaced. Check the spark when it doesn't start, replace it

Time to take the old volt meter out and start checking for signals. Verify there's no spark, if no soark, check to see if ur getting 12 volts to the module to make sure it's a spark problem
