If that doesn't fix the issue, sounds like you either have a fuel pump having intermittent issues or the accellerator pump inside the carb is starting to die. If you already know you're having carb issues, have it rebuilt and see if it helps.

Or perhaps the float level is incorect.
I would also eliminate any electrical issues. Maybe check if the HT leads are loose.
When it dies, does it imiediately start again?

If it's stalling while accelerating, I doubt it's the accelerator pump. That only comes into play as you first hit the gas. Could be a failing fuel pump. If you could cut in a pressure gauge and tape it to the windshield while driving would sort that in short order. Another though, based on the cold weather comment would be carb icing. Do you have the hot air tube to the air cleaner hooked up? If so, is the flapper working?
I dont have the hot air tube attached to the carb but as far of it icing, I live in south FL. Its been cold but not that cold. I was thinking the carb issues with the cold weather or the fuel pump on its way out. Not sure yet. Havent had any time to look at it some more due to working alot!!!!:-\ It does start right up after it stalls. So I beleive its getting the gas but theres a spot where it wants to die when driving every so often.
