Air entry in fuel pickup system? No cracks, loose clamps, fossilized gaskets? Can you see small air bubbles being sucked into the fuel filter?

Does fuel system require a re-bleed after 30 seconds of running? Does any air come out of fuel system after it shuts down?

Had similar symptoms from a JD powered tow-behind air compressor. Could see air bubbles filling up filter, and it died after a very short run. Would restart, but sucked air back into system. Repeat until batt dies. Fixed by brazing crack closed in pickup tube.
