Starts then shuts off...why?

I have a 1978 ish MTD 990.. I got it to where it will start up pretty easy, then after it runs for 15 - 20 seconds it dies, as if I turned the key off. What could cause this?.... bad needle settings? float not set right, I was told it had a new float put in but not adjusted. How do I go about doing such thing? Thanks for any info...:trink39:

Thanks for the replys. I have way less than half a tank so I will fill her up and try again.
