This may sound really dumb, but it will not hurt to try it!
Outside away from everything! Never can be too careful!
Always be ready with a soaking wet towel (a smothering throw), and a fire extinguisher as your last line of defense. Perform this outside. Just in case something bad might could happen when dealing with fuel.
Get a wash rag or similar rag.
Submerge it in water until it's thoroughly soaking wet.
Give it a little squeezing, just so its not so drippy.
With a little help, see if you can get up to about 2,000 RPM's. Maintain it for a few seconds.
Quickly cram and hold the wet rag over the carburetor throat let it die from 2000 to zero. (You may want to practice the rags "fit" before you actually perform the task) You want a really good rag seal on the carburetor when you choke it down.
The object here is to get the 2000 RPM's suction action to sort of vacuum out the inside of the carburetor/passages when you fully seal choke it out with the wet rag.
No that it is dead, it is really flooded!
Replace the breather (this will deter possible flames if something were to happen)
Hold the throttle down (fully open) and crank it, this should suck the surplus fuel on down the line and allow it to start.
I would try this once, but no more than two times. I've had good results doing this with my Jeeps, if something internal may have been blocked.
Any positive results?
