I had a similar problem with a 16hp Vanguard a few months back. Would run for 18 to 20 minuted and then die unless the choke was on. I tried all the usual things new fuel filter, cleaning the carb, blowing out the fuel lines, etc. Finally decided the only thing left was fuel, drained the tank, used new gas and put in a quart, drained that, then filled up. It's run fine ever since. There either was something wrong with the fuel or I was getting some form of vapor lock, in any event if the carb rebuild doesn't do it the only thing left is gas.
