I just aquired this engine S/N 7518-17491. It hadn't been run in a year and had lots of junk in gas tank. I cleaned tank and put in new fuel /oil mix. Motor would run briefly but stalled out after 15- 20 seconds. I cleaned carb and put on new fuel hose from tank connection to carb. Seems to run a little better but still stalls out. I can prime the line and carb with plunger on tank and make it run a little longer but it still stalls out in 30 to 45 seconds.

Does anyone have an idea what the problem is?

Also wold like to know year of manufacture based on serial no.
