    Why does pilot go out after approx. 10 minutes?
    Replaced thermocouple twice in 11 days. Pilot lights then gas valve shuts down after approximately 10 minutes. Replaced gas valve, same problem. I have 11" w.c. inlet pressure. when burner kicks on I have 10.5" w.c. outlet pressure.

    Gas pressure is fine. I believe your problem is either the location of the thermocouple or, most likely, a somewhat dirty pilot burner.
