Probable Cause:

PROBABLE CAUSE: "The pilot's decision to continue on to his destination in freezing weather after total power loss of one engine from induction icing.
Contributing causal factors were the serious deficiency in weather briefing and inadequate information in the Airplane Flight Manual for the most effective use of carburetor anti-icing and deicing."
