Is it carbureted? If so, make sure the fuel lines near the engine aren't getting hot. This problem sounds a lot like vapor lock. If the fuel lines are getting hot, move them or wrap them in some kind of heat resistant material and drive it to see if it's fixed!

Well that is a bit trickier. What changed since the last time it ran properly?
