    I am currently working on an MTD snowblower with 5.0hp horizontal. Unit is aprox. 6 yrs. old. The problem is that it runs like a bear until it has load put on it when driving into the snow. Then, the engine bogs down and will enventally die the deeper you go. Freshly tuned up engine, and fuel flow from tank. This has a fixed jet bowl carb which I have replaced with a brand new, with the same result. I am obviously overlooking something, and any help would be appreciated.

    You may have a problem with the govenor. Be sure all the linkages are hooked up and operate properly. Replace spark plug if you havn't done it already.
