Engine starts and idles for a time then cuts out like no fuel available, if try to drive engine stalls and if goes won't go over 30mph. Changed fuel line from pump to carb due to crack, changed filter, adjusted timing.

Could pump be bad? Or mixture or something else?

You need to see if the fuel pump is sending fuel to the carb first. It sounds like a fuel issue
