echo pb 601 blower carb problems!?$%@

Hello and thank you to any who respond.
I am attempting to repair this blower for a friend. When I recieved the blower at full throttle it would fall on it's face after about 30 seconds as if it would run out of fuel, then pick back up and stumble again...idle was fine. After doing some searching on this site I found the spark arrestor problems...I cleaned the spark
arrestor thoroughly..problem still persists. The gas cap was a non venting cap..I replaced it..problem still persists...I took the advice of a very good lawn care tool center "Gambinos", and purchased a rebuild kit for the carburator Zama k49a-92a, and a new fuel filter for inside the tank. After my rebuild and filter the blower is now running way too rich! I attemted to set the mixture screws what should be way too lean this helps but I'ts still running too rich...HELP
