Hello

sounds like somethign is overheating

if it always works fine from cold then I'd take a look at the spark / ignition module that switchs the coil disconnect it, clean up any wiriing connections and check wires for heat or other damage


I'd assuming its a carb engine with a mechanical pump so these are unlikley to geive issues in this way so check the the resistance of the spark plug leads ( 13-15Kohm / metre) and replace if any doubt or high resistance - Also replace the spark plugs if any of them fail this checklist:

and if this is OK then replace the ignition module
