I have a Craftsman 7-24 snowblower 536-90560. Got it running but when I engage the drive gear it dies out. Cleaned the carb and it has a new spark plug. Hummm??? Suggestions?

Did you let it warm up for more than 5 seconds? Does it have a fuel filter?

did you flush out the gas tank? when I put the new carb on my 521 it ran great until all the gunk in the gas tank made its way into my new carb. so there I was cleaning a new carb and the gas tank

Bearings and auger move freely?----Make sure to disconnect the plug wire before checking this!

This doesn't have an auger engage lever like this does it?
If the safety interlock wiring is working correctly, you have to be holding either handle lever with the auger engaged.
I just realized yours is a 536-90560 and mine is a 536-90570.
I'll bet thats it.
