Echo SRM 210 trimmer only runs for a few seconds

I have an Echo trimmer model SRM210 and it will only run after it has been choked. It will run for a few seconds at high speed and then die. Thiings I have tried after reading a similar post on this forum:
1. Cleaned the carb
2. Removed the exhaust and checked for blockage
3. Got a new fuel line kit
I don't see any high or low speed adjustment on this carb.
Any suggestions?

It's just running out of fuel. That's why it runs at high speed (lean fuel mix) before it dies. The diaphragms get stiff and can't flex to pump the fuel. It needs a carb kit put in it.
