old ariens carb problem

Hi guys, I've got an old ariens I'm having carb problems with, first it's a model 910962 7horse, 2stage, tecumseh, I had it running good [i thought] before the last snow but after 5 min running it quit, so i replaced the needle and seat & float, cleaned out marty hole and other hole, replaced gas tank & fuel lines, spark plug, set float level at 9/32, it fired rite up and ran great, idled smooth, revved good , then after it warmed up it went to ****, and wouldnt idle worth a crap, it runs fast okay but if you try to get a slow idle it wont rev, it seems to run better with the choke on a little, it misses every 5-6 fires, I started with both adjustment screws at 1 1/2 turns out and tried one at a time changing them but nothing seems to work for very long, Im about ready to part it out if it won't run rite. any help would be appreciated.
