Military Vehicles, November 1996,: M715 Gas in Distributor?

M715 Gas in Distributor?

I have a '67 M715 Kaiser Jeep truck with original equipment.

After not driving it for a couple of weeks, I recently was unable to start
it. After checking a few things I decided to pull off the distributor cap.
While undoing the screws that hold on the cap, fuel came pouring out. Yes,
the distributor was full of gasoline.

Anyone ever run into this before? If so, does anyone have any ideas why
this would happen? I have a few of my own, but would appreciate other ideas.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
