I have let my leaf blower run and warm up before throttling up and still it bogs down and shuts down. There is no air cleaner to clean should I just blow out the carb. and fuel lines?
It runs and idles just no high speed to blow.

if you take apart the carburator youll see a screen under the plate on one side once together turn the mixture screws in all the way till you feel it seat or tighten then back out each screw 1 to 1 and 1/2 turns then start the engine the key is to get it to idle once it idles turn the mixture screw the low side it will say l or h below the screw turn it in which clockwise till it runs smooth then back out slightly till it just starts to miss then rev up the throttle and adjust the high side which is towards the filter turn the mixture screw in till it revs to the highest point which I call the sweet spot your pretty close to what you need

I believe you to be correct in your diagnosis.
1) remove the fuel tank
*this will give you an idea of how lines are routed and fitted into tank
2) install a new hose through to tank fitting and make sure to retrieve the old hose & filter inside the tank, so that you can attach the filter to the new hose. The filter is weighted so that it falls to the lowest point to pick up fuel.

I took the carb off (easy- two screws), rebuilt and cleaned it, removed the black "H" & "L" needle jet screws (with no screwdriver slots) with a tiny pair of needle nose pliars, 1/8 turn at a time. They are very tight. Then I cut the slots with a fine hacksaw blade and re-installed them. BEFORE you begin, MARK where the "pointer" notch is on each screw so that you know where to reset them and count the turns coming out. Also, cutting the slot 90 degrees off of the pointer mark helps.
An option would be to hold the carb body in a vise and cut the screw slots thru the aluminum guard. Be very gentle, the screws are soft steel. If I had to do it again, that's what I'd do.
Get it running and adjust the "L" at idle until it runs smooth as rich (open) as it can. Then hold the throttle wide open and open the "H" (high speed needle jet) until it runs smooth, as rich as possible. This can be a CHORE.
Remember, richer (more fuel) is better than too lean. Too lean means less lubrication and running much hotter. 80% of the cooling in gasoline engines is from the evaporative effect of the charge coming into the engine. That's why carbs ice-up well above freezing. Ask any pilot.
