in time it will dry out or you can hold it a full throttle and crank it untill it starts but if it is flooded bad you will just have to wait for it to dry


You can wait till it evaporates or take the spark plugs out. With your plugs out cover the empty plug holes and give the engine a quick turn to get rid of any residual petrol. Best to disable the spark in the ignion leads if you atempt that so you don't cause a fire.
