Unhappy 1990 toyota corona gl starts dies after 1 minute

so ive brought a 1990 corona gl 2.0 liter it starts fine idles perfectly for no longer than 1 minute then it sounds like it runs out of fuel can keep it running for a little longer spraying fuel down the carburetor. fuel pump seems fine. new distributor. any ideas?

If you really don't have a fuel problem then when the engine dies check for spark. I had a 1979 Corolla that would run for 5 minutes then die, let it sit for an hour it would run again then die. The igniter circuit was defective.

yeah it has good spark. its quite wierd because when it dies it can take awhile to fire up again the other day i started it 5 times it ran for 1.24 every time im stumped stripped carby down cleaned it out must be an electrical fault. also battery light stays on all the time has a new alternator fitted.

Does the carb have a sight glass you can watch to see if maybe the fuel bowl isn't going empty maybe?
