Toro 22in recycler 6hp Tecumseh running issue

Hello all, new here to the forums and I've searched and searched but can't find anything like the issue I have.

Model number on the motor is LV195XA

Basically I'll start the mower up just fine 2-3 pulls every time. Then it'll run great for about 15 seconds then slowly dies. No matter what I do. Loosen gas cap, prime it, take air filter off, starter fluid to intake. After that I need to reprime and it'll take about 10 pulls and it'll start up and run forever. Feels a little bogged down after that though. I've changed the carburetor with a known working one, cleaned the original carb, replaced the spark plug, replaced the spark plug coil, adjusted governor, checked fuel lines and replaced air filter. Feels like I've done more but can't think of it right now.

I've fixed quite a few mowers but this thing has got me stumped.

Any advice or thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

    Sounds like a fuel flow problem from fuel tank to carb. If you spray starting fluid into carb does it keep running?
