Ariens Snow Thrower 11.5 hp

I just bought a used Ariens snow thrower. It's a 2004 I believe. It was hardly used and after I oiled and greased it, new gas it started right up. It ran rough but settled out a bit. My problem is the engine won't rev up and it begins to chug. Any ideas?

Can you give us the engine make, model and serial numbers? We have no idea how to help diagnose the problem without at least knowing what engine you have.

The motor is an OHSK 80-130 four cycle horizontal crank air cooled. It's a Tecumseh.

The snow thrower is a Ariens model # 924125

My first question is the choke operating properly? On Tecumseh engines there is 3 choke positions if i remember right.. ensure the choke is disengaging completely.
