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?
