Ariens ST724 w/H70 question

Hey Guys - quick question regarding air leaks. Where are some not-so-obvious sources for air leaks on an H70 Sno King? Research tells me that I may have an air leak which is making my blower race, then hunt. I have replaced fuel line, head gasket, breather gasket, O-rings on the carb...still acts like there is an air leak somewhere. Looking to you experts out there for some guidance. Thanks to all....

Check the gasket between the carb and intake. These symptoms could also be caused by a dirty idle passage in the carb.
