In Reply to: 1944 ford 2n: turns over fine and runs for 10-20 min then dies posted by Nathanial on Saturday, April 12, 2014:

Gas here in Oregon has the ethanol in it and I do not use any treatment.

The first thing I would do is check the ful flow thru the carb. With shutoff valve open two turns remove the plug on the bottom of carb and measure the amount of fuel flow. You should be able to fill a pint jar in 2 to 3 minutes. Don't just pull the plug and see fuel and say it is is ok. let it run and catch it. If it slows down to a dribble then you have a plugged filter or stand pipe on top of the sediment bowl. Remember there are three screens. One in the tank, one in top of sediment bowl and one on the elbow going into the carb.
If your fuel flow is good, as soon as it dies check for spark at the plugs.
Good luck
