I guess it's not if it happens but when. Unloaded inthe rain from the last show of the fall and ran my 36A into the shed and ran back to get the other stuff off the trailer. Came back to the A a month later to go plowing and found a couple extra quarts in the eng oil. Forgot to turn off the gas at the tank.!!!!
I drained it down, got it to turn by hand, put some oil in the cylinders. Could almost get it to start by hand. It went first try on a pull start.

Is there any special stuff to do now or just change the oil like regulars
Thanks Ken

On the positive side man it cleans the inside well.

That ole grudd that never comes out when you change the oil probably broke down and went out the drain for you,so if no harm done good deal

Pull the spark plugs out "before" you pull it to purge any gas out of the cylinders..

If and when you pull the plugs out to purge the fuel from the cylinders, make sure the plug wire ends are far enough away from the block that there is no chance of arcing and lighting the fuel. Dad did that once. It was "exciting".
