Tommays was right in that to eliminate the fuel pump as a source of the problem just pump the bulb when the engine starts to stutter. If the fuel pump is sucking air instead fuel when you pump the bulb fuel will leak out the engine fuel pump.
Sometimes a ign. coil will go bad with symtoms like a fuel problem. The coil heats up and breaks down internally and does not spark. This happen almost like clock work. A simple check for this is to take a can of computer cleaner air and cool the coil. If all works well when cool you have found your problem. This test is repeatable, coil gets warm and fails and then you cool it and everything is fine untill it warms up and quits then you cool it and it runs untill warm again.
If the engine passes these tests then go to the carb.
