Take carb cleaner and spray lightly into carb when it starts to die. If it continues to run one spray, it is too lean. If the spray kills the engine, it's too rich. If too lean, late 70's early 80's q jets sometimes need 6-8 turns out on the mixture screws. Read up on q jet power pistons. Make sure you have the primary rods inserted properly into the jets and the pp can move freely.
