Never had a carbed engine on a Super Z where if it ran completely out of gas I could not change tanks and it would immediately start, may have to choke, but it cranks right up.
I have a FX1000V (35 hp) on a 72" Super Z and I don't even care whether one tank runs empty or not, I switch the tank, turn the blades off, set the steering levers in the park position, choke the engine and it starts and runs within 4 or 5 revolutions of the engine. This is why I asked, can't understand why yours gives a problem cranking if running a tank empty, never seen this with a carbed engine, but the restarting an efi is an entirely different ball game.
