pulse fule pump. What line are you removing? inlet or outlet? Does the P line, the pulse line have a pulse if you remove it and hold finger over it, while cranking?

Out let side pumps fine. Motor will start and run fine with fuel line unhooked till it runs out of gas in carb. Hook up fuel line will run maybe 30 seconds and die gas still going into carb when it dies.

Pump is pumping fuel to the carb, but it still shuts off. Do you have the old fuel solenoid? Take it and cut the inner tip off, and install it as a dummy for test, and see if engine keeps running.
