engine starts... then stalls

'64 Ford 2000 4 cylinder gas engine starts easily and runs for about 10-20 seconds then stops. It will start right up again and run for about 10-20 seconds and stop again. It will do that over and over again. It also stalls easily when the throttle is increased. It sounds like a fuel supply problem, maybe the carb. Is there a procedure for cleaning or rebuilding the carb or do you think its something else?

Could also be something in the fuel line. When the engine is running the fuel pressure forces the debris into a fuel passage. When the engine stalls pressure is relaxed and the debris settles down, allowing fuel to pass and the engine to start back up.
