Runs then dies is typically a fuel line blockage.

I suspect that the inlet needle is sticking.

If it starts to hunt really bad and pop, burp and fart and catch itself with a puff of black smoke out the muffler at 3600 rpm even though the carb checks out for fuel flow, jets open, float adjusted right, carb vent hole is open, fuel cap is not clogged and gaskets are sealing correctly then it is the coil breaking down when hot.
Switch out the plug to a re-gapped good known plug and run until hot, if it dies then pull the plug and crank over, if the spark is red/yellow then 9 time out of 10, it is the coil, if pretty blue/white, it is the carb.
