Engine starts, races then dies

Bristol 30 w/a A4. Installed new head on engine, torqued, then reinstalled accessories, new racor filter, primed carburetor, started engine. Ran engine for 30 minutes, Sounded slightly rappy top end. Shut engine off then waited 5 minutes and started it again. Started ok., ran it then shut it off. Went home thinking next day shakedown sail.
Next day engine started but ran up to speed fast then died. This happened a number of times, It starts runs up to speed quickly then dies. What generally causes this? Dirty carburetor?
