It sounds like a fuel problem. Start with the easiest first. If you have gas in the tank you need to make sure the engine is getting a good flow of gas. Is the fuel filter clean? If it has never been cleaned or replaced do so and try again. If that is not the answer look and see if there is a shut down solenoid. Check the wiring and make sure it is tight. It could be a bad solenoid.

Check the gas cap vent maybe it is not venting properly and drawing a vacuum. As it gets near an hour go out and open the cap and retighten and see if it will continue running for another hour.....it might be a slow build up of vacuum in the fuel tank
