Assuming you mean it will sit and idle for 10 minutes then stop, you could very well have a fuel pump not working. Test that first. Under the left front fender on the top frame rail. 3 tubes. One is vacuum from the intake side of the carb, one from the fuel shut off and the last goes to the carb. Pull the carb one and see what comes out. Then crank the machine and notice the difference.

I have experience with a fuel pump failure. The pump is needed, you can’t bypass it and expect it to run properly.

Gravity is not enough to run the engine.

Gravity will work fine as long as the tank is full
Yep but before it gets down to half a tank she would not be running

I ran into this on the trail with my Magnum, the first time I had it out. Full tank of fuel it ran great. After the fuel level got down a bit it acted lean pop and sputter but if I let it sit for a while, it would start and run for a short time. Got towed the last mile or so into lunch and put fuel in it. Ran great again. Got it back home and found the fuel pump was shot. The bottom of the tank is not that far above the carb so there just isn't enough difference in height to make it work right. Without the fuel pump the fuel trickles out but not fast enough to keep the float bowl full. So it runs out of fuel. Let it sit and the trickle of fuel refills the float bowl and it will run until the bowl is empty again.

A dirty fuel filter can cause it to act the same way even if the fuel pump is working, but alcohol in the fuel will destroy the pump and lines before the filter is damaged, but deteriorated rubber from the pump and lines can clog the filter before the pump or lines fail completely.
