When it quits, do you have spark at the plugs? If ti has spark, then it has to be fuel problem.. But fuel filter usually does not show to be full when running, or stopped, but will fill when still. Where does the fuel come out of the tank? Off the bottom or out the top?

Bottom. Can take fuel line loose flows good. Stalls starving for fuel. Runs good for short time.
