10 hp tecumseh snowblower carb

I have a 10 hp tecumseh snowblower which was running great a few days ago. I ran it out of gas and when I refilled it, it now runs rough. When it idles, it coughs, sputters and almost stalls, . If I run it into some heavy snow it runs fantastic, never missing a beat. If I stop and back up it runs real rough again. I only see a fuel release button on the button of the float bowel and a another screw which only make it run from rough to rougher. I also see a idle ajustment screw. Is there another adjustment that I am missing? Does anybody know where I can find a carb schematic?

Hello KGAR!

Remove the fuel bowl and clean it out. Clean out the tiny holes in the bowl screw also. When it ran out of gas, the sediment and water at the very bottom of the tank ran into the carb. Cleaning it up should do it.

Let us know!
