flooding question

Got an early B - hand crank - and when I first start her, if I turn on the gas first she floods.

Seems to start her I have to crank it with the gas shut off, and no choke. Once she hits, I can turn on the gas and all's well.

Carburetor is rebuilt, and the problem continues - she floods instantly.

Any suggestions? Thanks for the help.

Had the same problem with a freshly rebuilt "B" carb. The float was set too high. After I re-adjusted the float setting, all was well.

Maybe that's your problem too.

if not the float, then the needle vavle that it pushes closed to shut off the fuel has a crack in the seat.
