Weedeater GTI 18

I have a Weedeater GTI 18 22cc 2 stroketrimmer. I noticed that the carb reed was misaligned and caused fuel to shoot out the carb intake. So I repaired it with JB weld and redrilled the screw holes and realigned. It worked for a week or so and then the same thing happened. It appears that the lobe on the crank - not sure of its exact name - that the piston rod attaches to, is moving in and out. Is there a fix for this or does it mean time for a new crank assembly or time for a new power head?
