Without punctuation, it's hard to know what this post is saying... I'm guessing here - It will start but will die in 10 seconds or so. If, once you start it, you press the throttle a little bit and let it go, it will then keep running.
If so, it sounds like the idle circuit could be partially plugged still in the carbs or the choke plungers are not functioning properly.
