Good advice given. You can take your battery to your local trusty starter/alternator shop and the guy will bench test it with the proper equipment to determine if it will sustain a charge UNDER LOAD, and most decent shops don't charge for this test. Know too that stalling out can be contributed to a handful of other issues like no fuel, no spark, bad wiring, or a combination of all the above. Start with the basics like the battery test. If bad, invest in a decent new one. We know it is a 6 volt battery but is it wired as a positive ground system? Check wiring, coil, maybe even get the generator and cutout tested too at the shop. keep us updated...
