I had a Briggs on a lawn boy that would do the exact same thing. Darn near wore out the screws in the carb before I decided I had it right.
The problem ended up being a sticky intake valve that only really started to act up after it got hot. Basically shellac on the shaft from the newer gas. Since you are at a kind of impasse, it may not hurt anything to eliminate everything else (also sounds like spark loss: coil, condenser, etc) and then open her up. If you can take the valves out, you may want to check their condition and check the guides too.
Good luck on finding your Gremlin, they can really make you go grey early.

there is a screen on the shut off valve and over time dirt and other junk build up in the tank.
do not use a air compressor to blow out the shut off valve or you will blow off the screen filter in the tank
you should be able to unscrew the shut off valve from the tank
