Have a check of the fuel lines from the pump, both to the tank and to the
engine bay and make sure they are not blocked.  The fuel pump works on
differential pressure thus will cut out if either the carbie has enough fuel
or the line to the carby is blocked or restricted by a blockage or a dirty
fuel filter.  It is equally going to cut out if it cannot get fuel from the
tank due to a bent or blocked pick up.  If the pump works on the bench but
not in the car then I bet that this is the problem.
