Craftsman SnowBlower problem

I have a Craftsman SnowBlower Model # 247-885570.
Tecumseh Model # is 143977001.

Engine starts, but sputters and dies.
changed spark plug, cleaned out engine oil,
put in new gasoline, but the problem persists.
What else should I be doing? Sounds like a
carburetor problem. Choke has to be full
throttle even when engine is running inside
the garage. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

You got it....carb trouble.

Remove the bolt that holds the carb bowl on, and clean out the tiny holes in this bolt. That may be all that's necessary to get it running right again.

Sounds like you need to clean out the carb. These carb have some very small orifices that can cause this type of symptoms.
