Need help w/ Toro snowblower


I have a Toro 8hp snowblower that recently started to run poorly.
It seems to pulsate between normal and very low RPM's, back and forth....I'd say every 2 seconds. Also, the exhaust is kind of black, and it's been stalling under load. I messed around with the screw under the carb bowl a little, and it seemed to help for awhile, but went back to running poorly.
Any ideas?? Thanks.

How old is the spark plug?
How old is the gas?
Does this unit sit outside or inside?

Check for a restricted exhaust. Sounds like backpressure, possibly a bad muffler.
