Fuel supply to carburetor problem

I have a Ford jubilee tractor. The tractor starts fine and runs for about 5 minutes then dies....if I wait 10 minutes it will start and run another 5 minutes. Apparently gas is flowing slowly out of the tank or through the sediment bowl. I disconnected the fuel line at the carburetor and put gas in a 5 gal plastic container with a tube running into the supply line for the carburetor. The tractor runs fine then. I have replaced the sediment bowl, ran a wire through the supply line from the sediment bowl to the carburetor to clean it out, changed filter going into carburetor. I have taken the gas tank off and cleaned it out.....nothing notable inside...a few very small specs found. Any suggestions?

Also, you can remove the gas tank cap, and see if it runs more than 5 minutes. You might have a plugged vent in the cap.

Open the tank shut-off with the line disconnected at the carb. Does it run freely. If not, put it back together there, and disconnect at the tank tap, and open the shut-off. Does it run freely? If not it is your tank tap.
