It would only run a few seconds on gas you dump in the carb. It’s getting fuel from the tank if it ran 10 minutes.
This was very helpful replacing the belt. Thanks Again!
On mine, with the PTO off, if I get off the tractor the engine will die unless I set the parking brake first. I can't start the engine unless I press the foot brake or have the parking brake set. I must be on the seat when the PTO is engaged or the engine will shut off.One exception, if the blades are NOT on I can get off the seat and the motor keeps running. If the blades are on, the motor shuts off. I'm thinking I might leave it this way. I don't use cruise control, so unless I'm missing something there isn't any risk in this scenario. I like ability to get off the tractor to open the shed doors without it shutting off. Is there a risk I'm missing in leaving it this way?
