Suggest you get Don Moyers A-4 manual if you don't get the right suggestion here. (www.moyermarine.com) He has a section on troubleshooting intermittent shut-downs and has some good thoughts on how to narrow down the problem depending on how it shuts down. Fuel problems usually result in a gentle stop, possibly slow enought that you could try opening the choke part way to see if there is any effect. A sudden engine stop is more likely an electrical problem according to Don, perhaps a marginal connection in the ignition circuit that is better when cold. Fuel problems that he mentions are a plugged vent in the fuel tank. dirt in the carburetor, faulty fuel pump (or the wiring to it if electrical), clogged filter, etc.
Good luck with it - by the way I also have a '64 Bermuda 30 with an Atomic 4.
