Ford 600 Carb Question

I have a Ford 600 that wont start. When I pull the hose off the air filter side of the carburator a fair amount of gas pours out. I am no mechanic but I am assuming this is not supposed to happen. Thinking the float may be sticking I pulled the carb and cleaned it but I still have the same problem. Any Ideas?? I think I have more problems as well. On a side note I am not getting any spark. I am thinking the coil may be bad but could a bad regulator cause this? If a damn mouse that nested in it through out the winter chewed through a wire then I'm really screwed. Thanks in advance for your help.

It is perfectly normal for gas to run out the intake after several seconds of cranking with no spark. To check for lack of spark take your test probe and start going through and find the point where the juice is not getting through. Don't condemn the coil or the regulator or the key switch, or anything until you have verified that it is getting juice and not working.

Thanks for the reply. I am relieved to know that it is normal. I hate to admit it but like I said I am no mechanic (more of a parts replacer...and I know thats not a good thing). And anything electrical is my worst area of all but I will give it a try and see what I can come up with. Thanks so much for the reply.

About 75% if all spark problem is that the points are bad dirty or have corroded over the winter time. Clean and or replace the points and you stand a good chance that it will run

Also check point gap it should be 0.025 and a easy way to make sure the points work is with say a plastic ink pen etc open and close the points. If you both hear and see a spark you know the points are working. You can do it by hand also but you will find out fast if you have spark if your nor careful because it will bite you big time

Today's Featured Article - Tractor Traction - by Chris Pratt. Our first bout with traction problems came when cultivatin with our Massey-Harris Pony. Up till then, this tractor had been running a corn grinder and pulling a trailer. It had new unfilled rear tires and no wheel weights. The garden was already sprouting when we hooked up the mid-mount shovel cultivators to the Pony. The seed bed was soft enough that the rear end would spin and slowly work its way to the downhill side of the gardens slight incline. From this, we learned our lesson sinc ... [Read Article]
