Sears sells what they call a "carb kit" P/N 545081857. It\'s a complete carb for $30 + shipping + tax. I\'n throwing near $50 after a $90 blower that didn\'t make it a full year. Not to mention that I spent half a day calling uninformed (but personable) clerks at Sears asking them about gasket kits for a carb. They just make up stories, like "bring it in, they will know what to do in the store" or "They have the parts in the department"

SOURCE: Craftsman 2 cycle blower stalls.
Most Probably the problem lies in the adjustment of the carburettor. There are two needles in the carb one for lowend adjustment and one for high end adjustment. Your lowend adjustment seems fine. The highend needle needs to be adjusted. Following are some very detailed procedures for adjusting these types of carbs
If your machine has a carb other than a "Walbro" dont worry the procedures are same. I am sure if your engine has not completed its life span this will solve your problem.

You may need to do two more additional things.
First, check the fuel lines for cracks/breaks.
If they are o.k.,then you will need to disassemble the carburetor and spray with carb.cleaner. Make sure the small screen in the carb. is free of debris. Usea Den Tek Brush, (http://www.drugstore.com/products/prod.asp?pid=165357&catid=1152), to clean the small portals in carb. Reassemble and start.
(NOTE: If the cleaning doesn't work, then buy a carb. kit abd replace all appropriate parts.)
If you need further assistance, just let me know.

Most likely low compression caused by stuck piston rings or a scored piston and cylinder. This unit was made by Poulan and they have had an epidemic of this problem. The solution is to tear the unit down and put in new piston rings. Before you install the new rings you need to get a sheet of glass and some 600 grit wet dry sand paper. Sand each ring down about .002 to .003 and reinstall. This should solve your problem as long as you have good fire and the piston and cylinder is not scored.
