When a fuel distributor is sitting the way yours is in that picture, the weight of that cast iron fuel head can bend the little steel tab upwards that is bent over the bottom of the control plunger to keep it from sliding out and landing on the floor or something. That can also happen if it's bumped hard enough during shipping.

It's best to store them upside down so that doesn't happen or supported around the control plunger when right side up.

If that tab is bent upwards enough the fuel head will never shut off fuel just like your experiencing.
