265, Kaw 540V engine
I ran the gas tank dry a month or two ago. I've since added fresh fuel but don't want to crank the starter until it blows up. (I've already tried for a little while but understand that if you run the starter for more than about 30 seconds it could be damaged as per Deere documentation.)
Can the fuel pump suck fuel from a thousand miles away sitting in the tank, or should I give it some relief by disconnecting the fuel filter and manually filling that up first?
Wondering if when it sputters up, the fuel pump can pump fast enough to pull from the tank before the carb bowl dries up again?
