Have you Removed the Muffler and Checked the Exhaust Port and Muffler for Carbin Restriction?
Remove the Muffler and Start the Unit. If the Operates Correctly, then the Spark Arrestor Screen is Clogged and the Muffler/Screen Requires Replacing.
Make Sure the Exhaust Port is Not Restricted Also.
Hope this Helps.

The initial setting is 1 1/2 turns out. Screw them all the way in and them turn them 1 1/2 turns out. This is the starting position and should start, it may need some final adjustments to run like you need it to run.
Remember more the screw is out the more fuel it will get.

I have found that most of the homelite hand blowers have a tendancy to loosten the cylinder bolts, that causes a low vaccuum situation thru the carb and needing more fuel to run. I would recommend you completely dissassemble the engine and replace the cylinder gasket, Use the blue loc tight on all the bolts. Any of these engines that dont have a thru crankshaft to dispurse the vibration, tend to vibrate all the bolts loose.

It's probably the coil or the fuel supply. You might try running it with the gas cap loose for a bit and see if that relieves the problem.
When the engine dies, you have to check the spark and the fuel supply. Have an ignition tester handy and check the spark as soon as it dies. If it will keep firing, then pull the fuel line from the carburetor and see if fuel is flowing. Let me know what you find.
