Engine Suddenly Quits

Iíve got a 1974 1.8 L-jet that runs fine with the exception of that it will occasionally just out of the blue, quit. Most of the time it will start running again before the car rolls to a stop, on some occasions though Iíve have to let it sit for a moment, then start it; at which point it runs fine again. The problem started out not occurring very often but lately seems to be getting worse, and its happened enough that Iíve been able to watch and note that the tach was still indicating RPM when the engine was dead. Iíve twice had to tow it homeÖ.after of each of those occurrences I thought that I would finely be able to troubleshoot and find the problem; but each time during the troubleshoot process it started and would run fine again. Any insight from someone having a similar problem would be appreciated.

I would check all electrical grounds for clean tight connections. Fuel filter, fuel tank internal strainer, fuel tank vent is actualy venting, and electrical fuel pump conections. Good luck!
