    Mayhaps make wooden a spacer that will go between the T cable sheath end and the inner cable end . Pull inner cable out to WOT and cut spacer to that length. Cut a lengthwise slit in the wood so it will slip over the inner cable and keep the unit at full rpms. Think a 3/4" dia. or so wooden dowel with a lengthwise slit.
    Or make a wedge or something to fit on top of carb between idle screw and carb lever.
    Get creative, or get a new blower.
