I doubt that you can flood it by using the accelerator like you can in a carbureted engine with an accelerator pump. I think your problem lies somewhere else, maybe the vacuum advance unit is leaking: if you disconnect the vacuum hose from the trottle housing, suck on the hose and release the vacuum, can you hear the vacum unit click? If you can suck or blow air right through it, it's leaking. -- MH '72 97 '77 96 '78 95 '79 96 '87 900T8
