50 gal natural gas water heater help!!!

I installed a 50 gal water heater, replacing a 40 gal that went
kuput. I now have problem with the pilot lite going out seem
the pilot will go out at least once a day or there about. I thought it
might be a draft problem but fixed the draft and it still goes out.
Once out it relights no problem just keeping it lit for 24 or 48 hours is
the trick.. Any ideas to help me with this little delimma..

Thank you for your help
