Do I need a new carburetor for my homelite st275?

Do I need a new carburetor for my homelite 275 string linetrimmer? I can get the string trimmer to idle and a little bit of throtel, but not for long befor it stalls. I have never used a forum befor so if I make some mistakes just let me know. I have taken the carburetor off and soaked it in carb cleaner. I have changed the fuel lines. I have sprayed carb cleaner into the intake, and it runs great until I stop spraying the propelann into the intake. I have taken off the fuel filter. It just does not seem like it will creat a vaccum in the carb. Do I need a new carb or get a carb Kit?

You probably will just need a kit, and possibly more cleaning/adjusting if you haven't gotten it clean enough yet.
