Craftsman Blower 358-794741 Carburetor

I've got the subject Craftsman blower in the shop. Starts if I squirt gas in carb then shuts off. No doubt a clogged carb. It is a WT875A. I was going to take it apart and put a kit in it however while searching for a kit on Ebay, I found out I could buy a new carb for $10.50. Didnt seem worth it to take it apart. I have already put new fuel lines on it hoping that was the problem as they were really bad however, no difference What kind of luck have you folks had with these chinese carbs ??

They can make green gas in a week or two if left sitting in the right way.

Just needs a bigger hammer

I've never had an issue with one.
Did you replace the filter in the tank.and clean the exhaust screen?
