Stihl 025 starts, runs for short time only

Hi all, I have a Stihl 025 that started having problems last year. It would run and cut great until I shut it off for a few minutes. It would not start again until it cooled down. To make a long story short, I ended up replacing the carb, gas line and coil. Now it will start great, run for about a minute, quit, and not start again until cold. I've checked everything I can think of, including putting the old coil back in. Nothing works. Any ideas?
Thanks

Does it have spark when it won't start?

I do have spark. I also forgot to mention that I replaced the fuel filter and air filter.

Make sure you have your fuel lines connected correctly.

Is the spark plug wet or dry when it won't start?
