Since it has been altered with aftermarket equipment(ignition), I can only offer you basics. Take a fuel sample. There could be contaminants or moisture in the tank that when agitated by turns/stopping, get into the fuel system. While your doing this, it would not hurt to check fuel pressure and volume. Pressure on a carbureted system should run around 3-5 psi, and volume of a pint in 30 seconds. Since it stalled and wouldn't restart for 24 hours, it could be a thermal problem with the ignition. You have a triggering device in the distributor that signals the coil, as well as the ignition module. Have you checked the distributor cap/rotor and wires? Check that the cap has no moisture inside of it. It could also be the coil. If you can duplicate this no start, check for spark.
