Engine stops when hot.

I have a 4 1/2 hp B&S on a push mower that stops when hot. I have replaced the carburetor & fuel tank, thinking it was fuel starved, due to a rusty tank. Now it runs great, smooth then stops! I reprime the carb, one pull on the starter and it's running again. Then after five minutes it stalls again. It is a 09L602-1623-F1 model. Any ideas anyone??

    Vapor lock. Try running it with the fuel cap loose.

    To me it sounds more like thermal shut down of the ignition coil or spark plug. Also need to pull the engine shroud and check for mouse bed.

    I had this happen to my Poland with a Honda 160 engine I rebuilt the carb and checked the oil with no success. I replaced the spark plug and it has worked for more than a year now.
