my 1973 beetle start fine,once it warms up it shuts off.it will start up again with starting fluid ( long crank) ,than it shuts off again.i check fuel pump by disconecting fuel line while car was still running,pump was working fine.when car shuts off by its own i found upper part of carburetor has no gas.i clean the carburetor and replace all jets and seals.still has same problem.carburetor has shut off volve,that has not been replace.is this a possible problem?
That's the best place to look.
Test shut off valve by Turning key on and off without engaging the starter. If you can hear the click, it's probably ok. Did you replace the accelerator pump on the carb when you rebuilt it? (It usually is included in the carb rebuild kit)
