    Have you had a fuel pressure gauge hooked up to it when it suddenly dies off? Does it die suddenly, or act like it's starving for fuel, stumble a bit, and then slowly die. If you can keep it running with sprays of starter fluid, that would answer that question.

    Sounds like it's running out of fuel then if you can independently supply it with a fuel and it stays running.

    A fuel filter is like 10-15 bucks. Replace it wether it's the problem or not I suppose it's possible it is the problem, but that would be too easy (and cheap).

    If you replace the filter and the problem is gone, the filter was bad I suppose there could be a clog in the line, or a problem with the regulator as well. Was the new fuel pump installed correctly?
