Hi everyone, I have been a lurker for a long time and this is my first post. I am working on a Craftsman mower (model # 917. 377425) with an Eager 1 Engine (#143.006502). The mower will simply not start- I think it constantly floods because when I took the carb. tube off of the block, gas trickled out and the spark plug was wet with gas. I have cleaned the carb. twice and still the same problem. I can't find if there are any adjustments on the carb. but it is clean. I have put a volt meter on the brand new spark plug and it does register current. The mower does try to fire, but it just blows out a puff of blue/ whitish smoke and dies. It also will jerk the pull cord out of my had from time to time. I have cleaned the flywheel and ignition module points of rust but have not checked the air gap, as I do not have that information. Any help you guy could give my would be greatly appriciated. Thank you.
