Maybe you need to adjust the float in the carburator. It might be misadjusted and keeping the needle valve closed. Take the bowl off of the carb, pull the little pin that the float pivots on, and bend the little brass clip on the float to adjust it. Put the float back together, and don't forget to put the needle valve in. When it's correctly adjusted, the float should sit parallel to the bottom of the carburator when the carb is upside-down (with the fuel bowl still removed).

Get a new spark plug. They do wonders. lol

Mike,

The new spark plug is a good idea, but better yet, next time it dies, replace the plug and see if it will start right up. If it does, you are most likely too rich at idle and fouling the plug. Then it won't start until the plug dries.

Check for a spark with the new plug just in case your ignition is flaking when hot.

Btw, if it cut out expectantly, what do you suppose it would expect? : )

Check the wires to your horn and make sure they are on tight or solder them on, if they fall off it won't run.
