Default Re: Runs for about 10 minutes and the just quits

I had an unusual one about 12 years ago. Same issue as you described. Turned out the add on pipe on top of the shutoff inside the tank had come loose and fall off. It was rolling around in the tank as you drove. It would eventually end up just over the hole that the gasoline flows into at the center bottom of the tank. The piece of pipe would then, in turn, block the flow of fuel down the line to the shutoff and carb. If you sat and waited for about 5 minutes, the flow of gas got around the blockage and the car would run for another 5 to 10 minutes and then would repeat the situation once again. A long pair of tweezers grabbed the culprit out and never had a problem since.
