Try installing a clear fuel line to see if it is doing this:

Plugged gas cap. The gas tank has to have a vent to allow air in, to let the fuel to run to the carb. Hope this helps, Noel.

Something in the tank stopping fuel flow?

Does it have spark when it quits? May be the electronic ignition unit breaking down.

that thing looks old enough to still have points under the flywheel. (not a bad thing)  Probably a bad coil or condenser. Give it a good tune up.
