tecumseh 10 HP engine ( on an ariens snow blower)

hey guys

i've just got hold on a used snowblower, and trying to get it to run smoothly before winter arrives here.

now the questions,... it starts and runs,, but ONLY at full throttle,, i've been googling as a maniac to find some repairbooks for the engine, but lucked out.

any of you able to help with either some easy tips on what to check first,, or where to find a service manual and maybe somewhere to figure out the idle and/or ful throttle screw adjustments??

thanx in advanced from a frustraded norwegian

First thing I would do is to remove and disassemble the carburetor, clean it thoroghly, and the idle adjustment should be 1/14 turns out on both.At idle turn the screw in slowly until you hear the engine change then go back till it changes again and then set it in the middle. Same with the high speed screw if it has one.
