    Will it start up again after it stalls? Sounds like you have spark and fuel, although it could be some kind of fuel supply issue. Poking around a bit online, seeing similar issues and owners talking about adjusting the carburetor. Also possible it's a fuel pump.

    Here's a video about adjusting the VW carb
