Good morning Jim,

You never mentioned the fuel system. Did you choke it when it was dying? What was the result? Did you check the fuel system, tank to venturi? HAve you tried spraying starting fluid in the carb when it starts to die?

It's been my experience generally that when an engine slowly loses power and dies it's a fuel delivery problem. Electrical, it shuts off like the key has been turned off, which in effect it has. I only mention this as you say it sputters and dies. If you haven't gone through the fuel system as thoroughly as you went through the electrical system you haven't done everything.
