Answers :

It can be carb issue, or it can be fuel related issue is can be blocked air filter, it has to be checked.\015\012Symptoms indicates it is more likely to be due to electrical failure rather than fuel. For carburetted engine, when fuel related failure occurs, it would tend to bog down first before finally stalling/ shuttering as the carburettor is not going to dry out immediately.Get the fuel line checked and inspected.

Most of the time some bumping or uneven road conditions cause the problem. Check for loose or weak wire harness connectors, especially the distributor and ignition switch. The bumping could have caused the connections to momentarily lose contact resulting in the engine stalling/ shuttering.

The next time it occurs and prolonged cranking time is needed, check if sparks are available. If none it means an electrical fault.
