On those B&S engines, it is usually the coil which causes that symptom.
For $5 you can buy a tester which goes between the plug wire and spark plug. ...This is used with the engine running, and you can visually see if the spark is failing, to rule out other possible scenarios.
Oil on the points, bad condenser, bad spark plug, are other possibilities for ignition failure, but the coil is usually the culprit if it cuts out when hot, but will restart after it cools a bit.
Believe it or not, but a loose valve seat can also cause the same symptom!
