Welcome to the forum!

Are you sure it's a 1951?

Does it have a front mount or side mount distributor?

It does make a big difference in what could be wrong.

In either case, when it quits, does it still have good spark
at the plugs? Should be a good blue/white color when checked.

If it has good spark, you could check fuel flow from the bottom

of the carb drain. It should flow steady, not dribble out.

Both need to be checked right at the moment of stall.

It would also help to know if it has been converted to 12 volts,
has an Electronic Ignition, etc, but basic troubleshooting is still

spark-fuel-air at the right times.

Let us know! :)

Thanks Royse

Yes, according to the reference with the serial number it is a 51 side mount distributor. I did not check the plugs but did the fuel flow. That is what I first thought the problem was, but has good fuel flow. It has not been converted. It is a six volt still orignal. I want to keep it all orignial looking.
