Carb has been rebuilt, and the cap and roter have been replaced, but it still stops running like the key has been turned off, no spark? Where should we look?

Sounds like an electrical problem. Check the master relay, ignition switch, etc. to see how far power is getting. Does it sputter, or just die suddenly? Does it start back up easily?

what it seems like is that the battery died. or a fuse blew.. you might want to check those 2 things
