Your manual states it is 50:1 which is 2.6 ounces of oil/gallon of gas...or 1.3 ounces in 1/2 gallon of gas. This is a common ratio for Homelite 2 stroke engines. I recommend synthetic oil.
Specs are on page 8 of your manual.

    You are quite welcome and that is far from being a stupid question. A stupid question is really the one that you DONT ask.

My craftsman 200mph/430CFM 25cc leaf blower will start and last for about 5 mins. on half choke and then die out and not start. It cant be put on run or it will die right away.eplaced spark plug. Still...

check age of gas. Cannot be more than 30 days old.
Make sure to use fresh gas w/synthetic 2-cycle oil @ 40:1 ratio (1 gal.) Gas to 3.2 oz. Oil). Do not use old or stale oil/gas mixture. Always use the proper oil/gas mix. If you do not, your engine will suffer rapid, permanent damage.May need to clean or replace carburetor.

Does this blower use 2 cycle mix; I have a homelite vac attack II 200mph blower and it is having trouble starting

Yes it will use a fuel mixture of 40:1(3.2 oz of two cycle oil to 1 gallon of gas). Any fuel sitting over 30 days now is considered bad fuel. All the manufacturers schools this year and told us this. We are finding it to be true.
Good day.

Craftsman 200mph leaf blower/vac the two carburetor screws inside are stripped, therefore the entire engine head assembly is loose, sucking too much air, need new screws & gasket and/or rebuild kit?

You can buy new jets from sears and replace them if you are able to understand how to do it. If it is intragal part of head you could take it to a machine shop to have it resized and and fixed but would cost about 100 dollaors.

it might have vapor lock, try removing the spark plug and spray a little penetrating oil into the cylinder, let it sit for a couple minutes and try pulling the cord again with the spark plug still off.
