Gen1dak will become famous soon enough

If you have a carb, it's been modified and no telling what the issue might be. If you're affectionately referring to the TBI as a carb, then I'd say your Hall Effect (aka distributor ignition pickup) is failing. They become more sensitive to heat once they begin to fail and will reset and function to varying degrees, becoming less reliable as they go. It's about $30, fits inside distributor, beneath rotor.
