Nice first post!! I believe that the fact that you can keep it running means there is fuel supply. ( I further agree with Scotty, make sure the filter is for gravity flow systems, NAPA has them) Manifold leaks to the outside will also show up using a propane torch with the nozzle (mixer) unscrewed from the pipe. Using pure propane (a small hiss from the pipe) as a feeler around the manifold and carb can pinpoint exterior leaks by letting it have enough fuel to run (usually) much better. If it has an internal leak to the exhaust side, it will not help at all. Some of the internal leaks (at the heat interface where the manifolds are connected above the carb can be seen by removing the exhaust pipe and looking into the hole with a little LED light. It is an ares that can crack, and rust through. Other times it must be taken off to see or test with water to assure no interconnect is present between the intake and exhaust sides. Best of luck, and welcome. Jim
