    just bought honda 15hp on cl. seems seller transported it on its back when i got it home and took off cowl there was oil on side and back of inside cowl went to pull manual start it appeared siezed took out plugs and about a 1/4 cup of oil came out lower cylander also noticed sum oil at carb intake i sprayed lots of carb cleaner and turned over many times tell things appeared clean put plugs back in and it wont start. wondering how bad this oil flooding situation is? it will run smooth for 4or5 sec. on a shot of carb cleaner btw. very greatful for any thoughts

    Drain the carb. It may be filled with oil as well. I have seen that before.
