    I have a 2006 Craftsman B&S 6.75hp Z-Start. Never had a problem until this week. Ran fine last week. Pulls easy and I'm getting spark, however the spark plug is soaked in fuel. Any thougts?

    Sounds like you may have a piece of trash under the float needle valve, You may need to clean the carb out with carb & choke spray cleaner and see if that solves the problem. If not replace the float needle valve and seat, Also check the oil for fuel contamination and change if so.

    Good Luck
