mower problem

My dad has a Craftsman riding mower that he is having trouble with. It came stock with the flat pancake style fuel filter on it. It was cutting back but from what I remember him saying it never cut off. He hasn't changed the fuel filter before and its probably 8 years old. So we changed the oil (we do this once a year), replaced with clear paper style fuel filter(mower shop said it would work), replaced spark plug, air filter, and new gas cap. He cut his yard and then about after 10-15 minutes it cut off. He looked down and no gas was in filter. We replaced the fuel filter with clear paper type and new fuel line yesterday. Cranked up ran for about 5-10 minutes then died. His mower is gravity fed, so i'm wondering if we should get the pancake (flat) style filter and try or is it something more to it.

It's probably not the filter.
