No problem. I would get your known issue fixed witch is the carb. Rebuild it and make sure the choke is working. Then see how it works. I am not a old time hotroder so im not familiar with that system, (born in 1980) but if the carb is gummed up and the float is stuck then it could be why its flooding. Also could be short on air. A rebuild or even a adjustment could fix the problem. Take a screw driver and tap on the float bowl and see if that helps. Maybe u can break it loose if its stuck. Dont go overboard with the tapping lol. No hammer needed like on a stuck starter. Only need to use the screw driver handle and tap it a couple times fair pressure.
