need carb kit for sears engine

I have a vintage gas edger with a SEARS 2HP gas engine model LAV30-30282E SERIAL 6053 00291 is it possible to get a carb kit for it or should I just put a new engine on it. it will run but its running poorly and overheating (smokes when stopped) oil is 10W40 compression is 90

New carburetor is Tecumseh part number 631985A and lists for around $65 and the rebuild kit is part number 631893 for around $10.

some more info I found out. its a sears 9 inch edger trimmer model 536.85625. about how old is this edger. Now you say the engine is a tecumseh but according to sears its a lauson. now like said the engine overheats and seams to run fast with no choke and will not stay running. so would a carb kit solve that or is the engine shot.tired adjusting the carb no go. Upgraded fuel line as the old one was a metal pipe with rubber around it and was missing most of the by overheating I mean smoke was coming out of the blower houseing after it stalled

It's a tecumseh (tecumseh-lauson). It sounds like a carb kit would help, but it may not fix the entire series of symptoms you describe.
