Carb problem on Craftsman Snowblower w/ Tecumseh Engine

Good afternoon. I was just wondering if I am able to replace the non adjustable fuel jets on the carb with adjustable ones. I have cleaned and recleaned the carb and jets and still can only get the engine to run while fully choked Thanks in advance.

The problem is usually the tiny hole at the top of the bowl nut, I clean it with the wire from a twist tie. Have a good one. Geo

I was having the same problem. I did however check the hole on the bowl drain as explained here, but
the problem still persists. I checked for any loose retaining screws/bolts but were all tight. Any other suggestions, short of installing a carb kit?
