We can start it by poring a bit of gas in the carb. It will start after much effort. Normaly will run for a few minutes and up to 10 mintes and then die.

It sounds to me as though the fuel pump is supplying gas.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
New fuel pump. We have removed it just before the carb and turn the key and it pumps gas. I have a clear filter on it and when i attach ot back to carb it appears that it is not flowing through filter.
