Craftsman weed eater wont run

Craftsman weed eater straight shaft brush cutter will only run for a few seconds . Ran good for 15years.Last year coil went out, filter in gas tank dried up.Replaced filter and coil and spark plug . Still didn't run. Took it to a shop and they said it had good compression. They said it was a carburetor, but they couldnt order the right one. Got it back from shop adjusted ideal and ran good for a month.But then quit running again. Wasn't getting any gas, so we ordered new carburetor from sears. Put the new carburetor on ran 3 days then quit but the carburetor was clear not clogged or any thing. Both the new and old carburetor do the same thing.

Craftsman weed eater 316.79196 can head be converted? My patience wears thin when I am trimming and need to replace the strips of line every half hour.

Yes, there are several after market spool feed heads at most home improvement stores. Make sure you write the modle number of your trimmer down before you go looking. Oregan has some very serious heads such as the speed feed, and the metal brush cutter heads, but you have to order them through a dealer.... A bit pricey, but worth every penney!

check for trash in the carb somtimes when you run then out of gas small peices of dirt or on older motors residue builds up in gas tank and it gets sucked into the carb there should be a screen that you can clean
