Default Uneven idle problem on my snowblower

11:00 at night I get home to 8" of snow. Thats the good part. I fire up the snowblower, it's a 8 or 9 year old craftsman with 8hp briggs and stratton. Ran fine for about 3 minutes then started surging and bogging out to the point where it slowly died. The gas is fresh and the plug looks fine. I'm thinking maybe the carb is gunked up?

you drain the bowls last spring?
if not that 2" of varnish just fuxored up your carbs.

next time use alcahol free gasoline, and put a cap of seafoam in every 2 gallons you pump.

Why did you feel the need to post a technical snowblower question to OT? n00b!

I have the same motor on my same age Snapper.

I find that if the choke is NOT left on at least it little it runs like crap...

Can I just dump a bunch of injector cleaner in it? I so don't like working on these things.
