Sounds like it needs to have the carb rebuilt or replaced. Dirt, vibration etc. you could try closing the choke a little.

I think you said you checked the gas tank. Back in my teen years I had a 54 ford and lost the gas cap, I stuck a shop rag in the gas filler to keep trash out. The rag disappeared, I thought it blew out, it didn't it went down in the tank.

I would be driving along and the car would die, but it would crank right back up. Like to have never figured it out. The rag would get sucked against the pickup tube and kill the engine. When dead, the rag would drop off and it would fire right back up.

One thing I can think of right off hand is your gas line might be getting warm then collapsing. Also a bad coil will do like that also. But by pumping the bulb and it brings it back up, something is stopping the flow of fuel.

I thought of the gas cap also, on a boat fuel tank there is a vent screw, if it is closed it will cause a vacuum in the tank to the point it will not allow gas to be pumped out, starving the carbs.

I changed the coil recently...and I have the same problem. I'm going to try to use high test gas to see if it makes a difference...if that don't work I'll have to bring it in to get fixed

If running with the air filter try running without. Sometimes under winter conditions they ice over.

I started running premium gas with some Stabil in all of my small engines. No more carb problems at all.

There's an adjustment screw on the bottom of the carb bowl. Play with it.
