snowblower only runs choked

i have an MTD 5hp 2 stage snow blower hssk50 67365M (h)
DOM 523513 ...Tecumseh engine

i was having problems blower only would run with choke on after setting 2 seasons, fuel was drained.. finally got it started and will only run on choke with throttle on high, so i rebuilt carburator, now will only run on low throttle (seems like high though) and only with the choke on.. i have tried to adjusting the bowl valve (did clean valve), but no good, everytime i open the throttle and choke it dies.

any help would be greatly appreciated..

Did you turn out the main jet on bottom of carb 1 1/2 turns and the idle jet on side 1 turn ?
Are you positive you reconnected the governor/throttle linkage properly ??
