If your engine has an adjustment screw on the bottom of the carb. try adjusting that at high idle first also if you have a low idle screw. If that don't clear the surging than you might have to take the carb. off and clean it. If cleaning the carb. out dose not do it you may need to put a new carb. kit in. Any questions feel free to ask.

Tecumseh 5 hp snowblower carburetor adjustment

Having to run the engine with choke on indicates that there is an air leak somewhere in the fuel delivery. Check the gas line for cracks, and if your model has a primer, the hose from the primer to the carb may be cracked.
