Re: engine keeps flooding
Locate the gold screw on carb which controls air/fuel mixture
and turn it anti-clock wise quite a few turns
it's most likely set too high and is just allowing too much fuel through and flooding the engine completely, If you Turn it totally anti-clockwise and start and it won't start you can gradually turn it clockwise until it starts and continues to run without flooding.

If your tractor keeps leaking gas into the crankcase see how you can fix the problem by ... The hard starting is caused by fuel filling the cylinder.
make sure your fuel is fresh and mix at 50:1
then remove the muffler and try to start it holding the throttle wide open... if it starts and runs fair suspect a flooded engine, plugged muffler
if not, suspect a carb adjustment issue and then a carb
The machine is completly flooded, remove the spark plug, switch the ignition off, crank the engine until there is no further fuel spraying from the plug hole, leave for a few hours to dry out, replace a dry plug and try again with no choke and full throttle.
Hi, this sounds like a wiring issue. If there is fuel supplied to the engine and the spark plug is good, you should be able to get it to fire. However if there is no spark due to a broken wire or faulty kill switch you will not receive a spark. Also, if you are certain that all systems are in order, you may have simply flooded the engine and the gas needs to evaporate from the various chambers. If it is flooded, you may also try starting in full throttle to compensate for the extra gas. This sometimes works.
Set the lowend & highend needles to about 1 3/4 to 2 turns each. Choke the carb or prime it, until the carb is wet. Fire up the engine and let it warm up. Let's set the topend first since it's the easier of the two. Go to full throttle. Adjust the topend needle for peak RPM. Leave it wide open for about a minute to see if it changes any. Should the engine go lean, open the lowend needle slightly, if this dosen't work... you will have to adjust the needle valve inside the carb.( I will explain this later) If the topend runs OK, then slowly pull the throttle down until the engine begins to "four cycle" hold the throttle there. Adjust the lowend needle until the "four cycling" barely stops. Now lower the throttle more until it "four cycles" again, and adjust the lowend again. Keep doing this until you reach full idle. Now, from full idle begin to throttle up until the engine starts to bog or hesitate. Open up the lowend needle just enough to eliminate the bog or hesitation.
Needle valve in the carburetor is not stopping the flow of gas. It may need to be rebuilt. You also may have flooded the unit trying to start it. I would have a shop do a compression test on the engine; it needs to be at least 100 psi to run.
if its flooded then it surly wont fire,not a 2-stroke. are you over priming or is there a malfunction. remove plug,put plug not a tester in the end of lead,ground, and pull. spark should be purple and consistent. if red/yellow/intermitent. change he plug. if the engine is only flodding on its own then the needle and seat could be stuck open in the carb, gas tank vent in fuel cap plugged and building tank pressure, or fuel mixed too rich. let me know what you find
