be careful, if the engine over revs it may just explode. These engines are very picky if over sped and easily blow up.
Your problem may be a broken throttle control rod, have look at that first. If the control rods are fine and in place it could be the fly wheel governor is worn out.

Hi, You have gum or old gas in the main jet on the carb, turn your fuel off, stand the snowblower on the front blower housing with handles in the air, remove main jet from the bottom of the carb and clean. Jim

Many times moisture attacks the hexagon shaft that the friction disc assembly slides on. It slides from side to side on the shaft to create Reverse 1 & 2, and the other end creates 1-6 forward. With a wire brush and sandpaper, clean the rust from the hexagon shaft, at the same time lubricate the friction disc bearing with penetrating oil and with a soft hammer, tap gently until the assembly starts to slide on the hexagon shaft. After all the rust is removed and disc assembly is sliding, apply a light film of graphite grease on the shaft. You may want to re-lubricate on a yearly basis.

These engines do not have an idle mixture adjustment. Most of the problems with them not running right are from bad gas, water in fuel, or carburetor jet deposits. If your fuel is ok, then you'll want to clean the carburetor metering hole. You'll want to either empty the fuel, or clamp the fuel line, but after that, take the nut off the bottom of the carburetor bowl. You will see holes both in the sides, and through the middle. Use a wire to clean these out, and some acetone or carburetor cleaner to get the rest of the deposits out, and you should be fine.
