Need some help. My 94 1500 88 will start run a minute then die . Starts back up and then quits again. My vents are not blocked, it has new fuel pump, fuel filter, also new pet cock, and it is getting gas. I am stumped, could use any suggestions. Thanks

definitely the carb bowl is running out of gas? could be the vacuum line from carb to petcock is not plugged in correctly and without vacuum the rubber stopper in the petcock is not opening to allow gas to fill up the carb bowl?

dies slowly- fuel problem (if gas stops going into carb, it will take probably at least 15 sec to stall.
dies instantly- ignition

The line from the gas tank to the fuel filter may be pinched slightly this happened to my bike so check it out it could be something as simple as that
