Snapper snow thrower Model 190412 stalls after 10 min of running

We have an old snapper Mod.190412 type 2738-01, ser. 1904122738-018307that has been stalling after 10 or 15 minutes of running. we hve replaced spark plug,made sure there was a spark,dismantled carb and cleaned everything(bowel,fuel injector, floater and replaced floater pin) and it still stalled after 10 min. running.Any suggestions? Does model have points and condensor that might be the cause. we have also put in higher octane gas and checked all fuel line and put in new fuel filter.

Try loosening the fuel cap when it may not be venting properly. Have a good one. Geo

That appears to have a Magnatron ignition, which means no points. However, the coil could be heating up and disconnecting inside. Next time it dies, immediatly check for spark.
