if its your timing it would start horrible and end horrible, always having to give it gas to stay on, put put out of tail pipe or carb ect..
do you have an electric fuel pump down around the outside of the fuel tank? check to make sure you are getting the proper gas, to do this at the carb disconnect the line and nut holding the line to the card, check for dirt ect while the line is disconnected, hold a folgers cofee can with the disconnected hose pointing into the can to catch gas, then simply turn the car over a couple of times not on just turn it, check to see if there is a good flow of gas going to the card, if there is then you have a problem at the carb and engine, if there isnt then work your way back to free up the restriction, i ask the question about the electric optional pump down by the tank, because usually you know if you have one, it hmms pusing gas to the front when you first strat the car, as it builds pressure it will shut off, sometimes when they go bad they stop sending the proper amount of fuel causing the car to run very sluggish and of course stalling all the time because the car isnt getting the proper gas to stay on unless you keep trying to pump the gas peddle..
if your hoses and everything look good, and you dont have a electric fuel pump and you are geetting gas, with no put put at tail pipe or anything then i would adjust the carb, the only botthering me about timing and the carb is the fact that it starts out graet like you said then after 10 minutes it gets crazy, if it were timing it would do it right away, it wont wait 10 minutes to do it, because everything would be effected like spark and stuff, i think you have a fuel problem, maybe a restriction somewhere, or at the card, mixture/ choke opening wrong, take a flat nose and close the choke, and see what it does after running for those miutes if it runs good while close but is horrble once opened fully then the prob is at the carb.. what ever it is it sounds like a fuel issue,,, good luck keep us posted on the outcome...
