So car was running good, then all of a sudden dies.... i figured it was a leak that i hadn't caught... vacuum wise but then everytime i started it the rpms dropped and wouldn't hold at all, then died again..... but it was workin fine ten minutes before that.......argh.....

10 minutes is about how long it takes for the choke to pull off completely. Sounds like you have a severe vacuum leak or a badly adjusted idle speed/mixture. A clogged idle circuit in the carb would do it as well.

Hitachi's are a pain in the rump roast. Even for us that know them well.
