Sounds like the carb is still not right or the unit is low on compression - you need 90 lbs min

Weedeater starts but won't keep running

Grow a third arm or have someone follow you pumping while you trim :-).

The fuel pump is part of the carburetor body. You could disassemble it and see if something is stuck in one of the flappers that make up the pump or it may be broken and need a replacement. It's just a thin plastic piece in there that makes it pump using engine vacuum pulses to drive it.

My weedeater want start change spark plug

I would have a cylinder compression done on the engine before spending any more money. It may be below 100 psi and will not run. Plus if your fuel mixture is over 30 days old I would mix up some fresh fuel mixture.
Or the diaphragm in the carburetor has become stiff and is not pumping any fuel.
Good Day.

Featherlight plus weedeater, where does the second gas tube go?

On a two-stroke engine, the second line is a pressure line.. it is actually running back to the tank and helps pressurize the tank to feed on the other line...there should be a second hole in the tank .
