No, not that we can tell. I don't have much experience with Strombergs. How do you know? In any case, in the meantime, they got it started, but no idea why. Is there a kill switch on the trans or clutch?

No kill switch, not as long as the starter worked...but next time post the year of the car.
Usually if the carbs are flooded, you'd smell gas, maybe even see gas dripping from the carbs or air filter.

Cranking will probably just foul the spark plug worse which is why it wouldn't start in the first place
You could remove the spark plugs and let the cylinders and plugs dry out....but unless you figure out why it flooded and tend to that, it would probably just flood again.

Czarcharles are you and the original poster "kgk" dealing with the same car or is this 2 different cars ?

We did pull a couple of plugs to R/O flooding, they were dry. I guess this time it's going down as an unknown since he reports it's starting without issue now. I appreciate the help.
