Carb. or Electrical Problem?

Hello, I have a '76 Scout II with a 304 V-8.
A few weeks ago, my Scout started the unusual habbit of shutting off once the motor started to get warm. I would restart it, and the motor would run OK for about a minute and then shut off again. I would try and start it for a third time and the motor would act as if it was flooded and would not start again unless you let it sit for a few minutes and then tryed to restart. Once it started this third time, it would run good the rest of the day as if nothing ever happened, even if you let it sit for a while. But, then the next morning I would go to start it again, and the same process would follow. The Scout has been doing this for about two weeks now, and now, it will not start at all and I don't know why.
I have replaced the fuel filter, air filter, electronic ignition moduel, (gold box on the fire wall), and the ignition coil. The carb. is the original, and I know it is getting gas, so the fuel pump is not the problem.
Does anyone know, do I have an electrical component burned out and if so, what, or do I have a bad carb. ? I REALLY NEED HELP! I just did a frame off resto on the body, so now I have a great body and "no go".

Re: Carb. or Electrical Problem?

Just guessing here, but I had a Ford that did this and it turned out to be the pick-up module inside the distibutor.
