I have a Craftsman Lawn Mower Model 917.377842 with a Honda engine. To make along story short, I made my usual tune up for the season. I had the blade sharpen, changed oil, changed spark plug & put fresh fuel in. It usually starts with 2 pulls but didn't and found oil in the air filter compartment. I eventually tipped the wrong way while putting back on the blade. I drained the oil & gas & put fresh in. The oil stopped squirting into the oil compartment but still wouldn't start. I tried cleaning the carb but decided to replace it. It still won't start & now the engine floods with gas. What's going on? None of this has ever happened. I sure would appreciate any help. I've had this mower for at least 11 yrs & aside from a few minor repairs, it has been great.
