My b&s model 461707 is flooding. I have completely rebuilt the carb, new fuel line and filter. Still flooding. I even bought a brand new carb and it didn't help. Thinking maybe the new carb was faulty, I rebuilt it to no avail. It has done this in the past and a rebuild always fixed it. It started after raising the rear of the tractor maybe 2 feet in order to change a broken belt if that gives anyone any ideas. I am stumped on this. Maybe a slightly longer needle? Silicone the top to the bottom rather than using the gasket? Thanks all!
