When it won't run, try and identify what is lost. With the randomness, I would not suspect a fuel pump, but control could be possible. Pull a plug wire, create a gap to a ground and check for spark. It sounds more like an ignition module type fault. When it won't start, shoot some starter fluid or carb cleaner down the throat and see if it tries to fire. If not, you lost spark.
