My 10 year old Gator 6x4 has started flooding once in a while, and won't start. I never have to use the choke to start it, and don't use it hard. I put a new air filter on it, and the plugs have about 2 hours on them. If I take the plugs out, and clean them, it will usually start, but not this time. I have done this 4 times, and it keeps flooding and not starting. It rumbles a couple times, but dies right away. The plugs were soaked when I pulled them. I couldn't find any prior help posts, so does anyone have any ideas?

VERY GOOD Mr. Webbee. Check for priors and then ask. Your problem is in your carb. A new one will fix, but you can also try a new seat valve. Take your carb off, take the bowl off, turn it upside down and check the float level. If the float is dipped down below parallel to the bowl mounting surface, and I'm sure it is, you need a new seat valve. AS the tang on the float rubs on the end of the seat it wears the seat away to the point that it isn't long enough to completely seal off the gas flow and so you start leaking gas past the seat and you flood your motor. Part # is M95924, around 20.00. ....
