When she dies, immediately take the tops off the float chambers. If they
are full of fuel, then it's likely a carb issue (as I described), or
possibly a bad coil (if your coil is getting very hot to the touch, it
could be bad). If the float chambers are empty, then it's a fuel
delivery/float jet/fuel pump problem.
