Glad i've been collecting junk bikes for parts.....

Also had a sudden fuel starving problem.... Had fuel flow to carb, had flow thru the float valve but it would just starve, and or airlock and die....Let it sit for a minute and it would go....

Tore the carb apart , cleaned everything and it still did it....Tore it apart again and recleaned everything and it seems ok now...... hmmmmmmmm.....

Busy day.....
Check the gas cap. The tank needs air flow. Bad tank vent (in gas cap,) will do just what you described.
