I just bought the rebuild kit for this Walbro and it fires and runs for about 2 seconds and dies. As I was cranking on it again I've found gas spitting out of the muffler. It was doing this before I bought the rebuild kit. Could the needle be sticking??

I'm assuming you used the new needle from the kit.
I always shine up the float needle cavity with 0000 steel wool strands twirled by a broken toothpick or Qtip

Also, if you used new metering lever, it might be set too high, I usually use the old metering lever if it's not too worn. Also assuming you got the metering spring set under the lever correctly.

Thanks Glen. I ended up retrofitting another Walbro carb to the weed eater and it runs like a champ....thanks for the quick help, I will start trying that now.
