Question Toro S-200 snowblower engine stalls

I have a Toro S-200 Snowblower that starts and runs fine but once you goto use it the engine stalls unless I put my finger over the primer button hole and/or give it a pump or two. Then it will run fine for a few more minutes then start to die again when I tackle some bigger snow piles.
Could I possiblly have a primer with too big of a hole? Or does this sound like a gas cap vent problem?

It is probably a carburetor problem, especially if it sat unused for some time, and was working prior to storage. I don't know which engine you have, but assuming it is a Techumseh (they pretty much have the snowblower application hemmed up)... remove the carb. bowl nut. There are 1 to 3 tiny holes in it (depending on type of engine). Make sure all holes are free of obstruction. Reassemble. That is likely all you'll need to do. Try it and let us know how it goes!
