It sounds like you are getting vapor lock. This can be caused because your fuel line is sucking in some air due to a minor crack. Check for a loose or dry rotted fuel line. Also make sure that your fuel line is not come loose and is hanging down to close to the exhaust. Vapor lock is an air bubble forming in the fuel flow and blocking gas from getting to the carburetor.
