Snow Blower engine runs very rough

I was given a Mastercraft snow blower with a Tecumseh 5 HP engine Mod # HS 50 - 67258H Ser # 8267B. I cleaned the rust of the fly wheel and magneto install new plug, unit runs very rough and dies when in gear and the auger is on. My question is can the carb be over hauled? How does the bowl come off? can the whole carb be submerged in carb cleaner?

YES THE CARBURETOR CAN BE OVERHAULED
THE REPAIR KIT PART # IS 31840 , THE BOWL IS REMOVED BY REMOVING THE BRASS NUT ON THE BOTTOM WITH A 7/16" WRENCH.YOU MAY NEED TO REMOVE THE WELCH PLUGS FOR A GOOD CLEANING. NEW PLUGS COME WITH KIT. YOU CAN SOAK CARB. IN CLEANER SHOULD BE NO LONGER THAN 15 MINUTES. ALWAYS USE NEW GASKETS. ADJUSTMENTS TO BE DONE WHEN ENGINE IS WARMED UP.

3600+/- 20rpm. That's the top end, I'd say idle should be between 1200 and 1500, but I don't know what model motor it is. I'm assuming its a Tecumseh snow king engine
