Atomic 4 cutting out in forward.

Hi All,
I have a fresh water cooled A4, that up until now ran great. After sitting over the winter, The engine starts fine, idles well, runs fine under load in reverse, but cuts out after 30 seconds under load in forward. I have changed the gas, replaced the fuel filter/separator, checked the tank vent (tank is new), installed new carburetor, fuel pump, ignition coil etc. I finally got it running under load on Monday after attempts at bypassing the fuel filter and even hooking up the portable tank for my outboard. I let it run under load at the dock for 30 minutes and all seemed fine. Then yesterday when I tried to put it under load in forward, it cut out again after 30 seconds. I'm out of ideas and would sure appreciate any suggestions that anyone out there might have.
