    Default runs for about a minute then dies......

    I have a 1978 i/o, volvo penta AQ120B. I have replaced coil twice, cap, rotor, thermostat, fuel filter, plugs and wires, cleaned all fuel lines, manually checked the fuel pump, cleaned carb. It runs great for about a couple of minutes across the lake then dies, then gets progressively worse. What am I missing??? geesh this is getting expensive
