I HAVE REPLACED THE FUEL PUMP, FUEL FILTER, ADDED GAS TO THE CARBUERATOR AND IT WILL RUN FOR A FEW MOMENTS AND THEN DIES. CANNOT FIGURE OUT WHAT MAY BE THE PROBLEM.
Do you
have the same problem?

Do you hear the fuel pump when key at run for a few secs-confirm the fuel pressure if its within specs and also if the injector/s are pulsing and also test the oil pressure sending unit

Probable stuck float or seat not letting fuel into bowl. Also could be debris in cabr. Reccomend a rebuild
