    I have a trailblazer 5 snowblower that after a thorough cleaning (including the tiny main port) refuses to run at anything more than idle without sputtering and backfiring regardless of either needle adjustment. I cleaned the entire fuel system including the tank. It won't perform any better with the choke on either. It idles great with no choke. Any Ideas?
