Most definitly the fuel pump. but good news, there is a fuel pump shut off switch located on the vehicle somewhere (on most models). check with your local parts store and they will be able to tell you if there is one or not. try this site (autozone it will answer any question you have.

1990 toyota corona 3sfe carburetor starts and runs fine for no longer than 1 minute then sounds as if its running out of fuel. starts fine after about 30 seconds of winding over then dies again

A few possibilities are: -

Blocked or restricted fuel tank breather.
Blocked or restricted fuel supply from the tank
Blocked fuel filter(s).
Failing fuel pump.

If you presented your car to me I would test the fuel pump pressure first as it is probably the easiest to do.

(TOYOTA SURF 1990 TURBO DIESEL) No diesel coming out of fuel pump

If it has glow plugs or an intake heater you will need to disable the circuit. Then you can use a small amount of ether to spray into the air cleaner.!!! If you spray too much and/or Dont disable the circuits you can damage the motor!!! When you spray the ether, if the engine starts and stalls then its not getting fuel. This could be related to the fuel pump, injection pump, the fuel system loosing its prime(fuel line leak), fuel shut-off valve or solenoid. If it doesn't start then it could be related to your timing, valves or maybe compression.

Fill your fuel filter all the way up and take precaution not to get any air into pump. Try this several times. Once you get air into some pumps it can be very hard to bleed it off. There should be some way to bleed. Look on pump for bleeder.

I have a 1981 Toyota 4WD with a 22r engine. Truck has been sitting up for about 8mos. I purchased it and got it home. The only way I can start if is by pouring gas in carb. I have replaced all vac lines...

check the fuel pump, maybe it is not working. if you put a new accelerator pump, I wonder if it's same as the fuel pump. if so, maybe you need to rebuild your carb, clean the small fuel line in the carb, something block there.
