It is a front mount distributor. When you say flood the carb or worse? What does the or worse mean?

That gas has to go somewhere, it can end up in the crankcase diluting your oil.

You may want to check or change it if you haven't already.

With the front mount distributor you take it off the tractor, set the point gap

and timing all on the bench and put it back on. There's nothing you have to
set while running with a timing light as with other ignitions.

The procedure is in the I&T FO-4 manual or can be found in the archives here.

If it has set for a while the valves may be sticky. Just working it may help.

If and when you flood one the first thing you need to do is clean or replace the plugs. Auto lite 437s have been found to work the best in these tractors. If flooded to the point you have stuff coming out of the exhaust pipe you have other problems and maybe have gas in the oil and if so you got bigger problems. Check the spark at all 4 plugs and make sure it is a blue/white in color and will jump a 1/4 inch gap. Next pull the carb drain plug and let gas flow a few minutes. Catch it to look for dirt etc which can cause the float needle from closing as it should which causes it to flood.
