SOUNDS LIKE CLASSIC VAPOR LOCK, PETER! YOU MAY NEED TO PUT SLEEVE INSULATION AROUND THE LINE WHERE IT'S CLOSE TO THE BLOCK!

Weak fuel pump possibly - membrane getting ready to go.

When it's stopped pull a plug and check for spark.

That will narrow down somewhat. Likely gas but have seen the odd coil or condensor doing funny things. Moisture in the cap?
