All of the above. Gas cap is easiest, check it first. Additionally, check for a clogged fuel filter, happened to me before.

Check icing on the carb next. Don't have that problem in the sunny south, so I can't help a bunch

Go to fire. Do you have any when it is hot and shut down? If not, likely the coil. It will start again when the coil cools. I assume that you also changed the condenser when you changed the points. I change condensers and clean points.

Got fire, check the gap on the intake valve, both valves while you have the cover off.
