Toro vintage early 1960's snowhound H35-45234f
I was fortunate to pick-up a very well maintained oldie but goodie and so far I've re-built the carb which really didn't need it but after replacing the tank to carb fuel line and spark plug and opening the fuel shut off valve I got nothing when pulling the cord. This thing has one of those manual push-plate primers which to me are useless but I was reading how you could spray carb/choke cleaner in the choke. So as soon as I did I pulled the cord and she came to life! But it was just for a few seconds and she died. But it was a real soft mutter. Any suggestions as to what I do or check next

Check to make sure you're getting fuel to the carb, pull the line off at the carb and if you have it there, make sure the needle isn't stuck or the float set too low.
Make sure the windows are up before the snow plow goes by !!
