60 HP Johnson stalls

I can take my motor from starting to WOT. Runs great at around 5000RPM. If I stop the motor to float a while then restart it I can again go WOT BUT then in a few seconds it starts to die then goes back up and then dies. It basically runs out of gas. Bulbs ( I ) have 2 tanks with fuel lines with bulbs into a manifold with shutoff valves. Doesn't matter which tank I'm running off of the bulbs go soft. After pumping it back up and seeing fuel in the see thru fuel filter it will restart and run fine at WOT, never starving for fuel, until it is shutoff. There are no fuel leaks anywhere.
