Tecumseh Starts Right up.....for 60 seconds

I have a 6.75hp Eager 1 by Craftsman (Tecumseh engine). It starts right up with pushing the priming bulb 6 times, runs smooth and normal for just about 60 seconds then just quits. I took the carb off cleaned it, etc. put it back together and it ran fine for an hour or so. Now it is doing the same thing...starts right up from cold with six primer pushes (3 never did seem to get it with this mower), runs fine for about a minute then quits as if it ran out of gas. I tried it with the gas cap on and off also. same result.

Am I missing something, or is this just another bit of dirt in the carb somewhere?

thanks much

Ed

Its still in the carb. Try paying special attention to the holes in the bolt that holds the bowl on the carb.

thanks for the help. i cleaned the carb and poked some tiny wire through the carb bolt hole and just finished mowing the grass before the rain hits. runs great.
