toro snowblower only runs when primed

I have a Toro s200 blower that worked fine last week and a few days later I tried to start and now will only keep running while the primer button is continually pressed.
Doesnt matter where choke is set.
I removed fuel line at carb. and fuel runs freely from tank.
Re-adjusted the idle and power screws, put back together since it seemed ok .
Started and back to same problem
Thanks for any advice.Never did like these really anyway

Since you say that it will only run when you prime it means that the fuel isn't being delivered the way it was meant to the carb. I would replace the diaphragm. Tecumseh has complete carb kits available for those carbs and that is what I would recommend.
