Need snowblower info

I have a craftsman 563-884822 snowthrower that will start if primed, but dies imediatly afterward. It will continue to run if I continue to pump the primer bulb. I assume I have some form of blockage in the carb. The fuel was in there for some time before I got it. What could be causing it to stop after 2-3 sec of running? If it is the carb, where can I find a IPB to tear it down and rebuild it? Thanks for the help.

Yes, the carb needs to be taken apart & soaked in a Carb cleaning solution for at least 2 hours maybe more depending on how dirty it is. Then rinse with water and BLOW out EVERY HOLE with compressed air.

Even tho this is a 5hp, the basics are the same.
